The Case of IBM 386 PC: A Detective Story for Techies (Amazon)
Friday, 03 July 2020

This is a fictional story set in the year 1994 when IBM PCs are in rampant use, Windows is at version 3.1 and C++ has just started to become popular with the PC programmers.  Author Jim Grep's story involves a few software developers getting together to play detective and solve some interesting bugs entirely by logic and deduction. The developers have an informal dinner meet where they take turns telling an interesting bug story from the past that others try to solve, thinking like an armchair detective.
