Read full description of the books:
A RANDOM ACT OF CHAOS...
Spencer Casey is a 20-year-old high school dropout who works in a failing puzzle factory in Philadelphia, chopping up Masterpieces of Western Art into jigsaw puzzles. He is tired of being an effect instead of a cause. On the night before the factory is to close, inspired by the image of a butterfly flapping its wings in China, he scrambles the pieces of a painting called “Chaos Scape 19” and sends his own ripples of chaos into the world.
A BUTTERFLY IN PHILADELPHIA is a satirical comic novel and at the same time a coming of age story for the two narrators, Spencer Casey and Lindsay Pangborn, who, like most young people, manage to navigate successfully through the chaos they inflict on the world.

Read information about the author
It’s way past 1984 in the dystopia called Goozle Earth. Your toothbrush, your coffee maker and your Rice Krispies are running your life. But don’t worry... BIG DATA IS WATCHING YOU!
For Smith, a native of this paradise, life gets complicated when he wanders off the grid and discovers sex®, the knowledge of good and evil, and the pursuit of Happiness. Can he save the human race from Goozle Inc. and the Next Big Thing?
Bruce Hartman's latest novel is a satirical comic dystopia set in a future in which the all-powerful force of Big Data rules humanity through the Internet of Things and the corporate power of Goozle Inc.
The book is intended to be fun. To quote Groucho Marx: "Humor is reason gone mad."
BIG DATA IS WATCHING YOU! follows another satirical comic novel, A BUTTERFLY IN PHILADELPHIA, which has garnered a following on Amazon, recently reaching No. 3 on the paid best-seller list for literary satire. Readers' Favorite Book Reviews gave the book Five Stars and called it "one of the strange comic masterpieces that you're quite lucky to run across once in a very great while."
Bruce Hartman's previous four novels were mysteries. The first one, PERFECTLY HEALTHY MAN DROPS DEAD, won the Salvo Press Mystery Novel Award and was published by Salvo Press in 2008. His second book, THE RULES OF DREAMING, was published by Swallow Tail Press in May 2013. Kirkus Reviews selected THE RULES OF DREAMING as one of its "Top 100 Indie Books of 2013." Another mystery, THE MUSE OF VIOLENCE, was released in October 2013.
THE PHILOSOPHICAL DETECTIVE, subtitled "The True Story of An Imaginary Gentleman," was published in 2014. It explores the boundary between literary fiction and the mystery genre - and as always in Hartman's fiction, between fiction and reality.
Bruce Hartman lives with his wife in Philadelphia.
