(#76157) TROUBLE AND HER FRIENDS. Melissa Scott.

TROUBLE AND HER FRIENDS. New York: Tor, [1994]. Octavo, boards. First edition. "Scott's most popular novel, which might be labeled feminist cyberpunk, tells the story of Cerise and Trouble, two young lesbians who make a living hacking computer networks and stealing industrial secrets. Eventually, like many young hackers, the women go straight and get legitimate jobs in the field. Then they break up. Years later Cerise discovers that someone is impersonating Trouble on the Web, hacking industrial secrets and intentionally spreading viruses. The two team up again to stop the attacks and clear Trouble's name. Unlike many cyberpunk novels, Scott's book devotes significant space to personality development and interpersonal relationships." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-976. 1994 Lambda SF Award winner.
