Excerpt: Chapter One. They were sitting on their sumptuous tempreg (temperature regulated) foamplastic couch opposite the fireplace. Above it the normally beautiful crystal mirror had, by the flick of a switch, become an illuminated chessboard with its thirty?two chessmen. The two players, each holding a miniature chessgame in his hands, watched the large board over the fireplace intently. As each player moved pawn or other piece on his hand?board, the corresponding move on the large illuminated board followed electronically. Had there been company, everyone could have watched the progress of the game from all over the room. But that memorable night they were alone?Duke Dubois, famed professor of physics at Columbia University, and his wife, Donny, beautiful and sensuous ex?huate couture model and daughter of Auguste Hawthorne, dean of the School of Engineering at Columbia. Professor Dubois, and inventor of note, was at home in practically any branch of science, including sexology. A Nobel Prizewinner for his recent discovery, the Cosmitronic Field Theory, he had won worldwide fame at the age of thirty?six. The couple lived in a large two?story stone and marble villa in a secluded spot on the Palisades overlooking the Hudson, in New Jersey. The house was crammed with Dubois? own devices and inventions?from the tempeg couch to the electronichess over the mantelpiece.
