Michaela Roessner’s 1993 Vanishing Point is a near-future science fiction novel1.
Thirty years ago, 90% of the human race vanished. Alarm and chaos ensued, followed by a gradual return to stability. While the old world will never return, civilization, particularly that part of it in and around San Jose’s Winchester House, has prevailed.
Two unrelated crises are bearing down on San Jose.
