Missing Signal

Coming August 28, 2018

From Seb Doubinsky, author of The Song of Synth, The Babylonian Trilogy, White City, Absinth, Omega Gray, and Suan Ming, comes his highly anticipated next installment in the City-States Cycle. Missing Signal—a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a government conspiracy? Agent Terrence Kovacs has worked for the New Petersburg Counter-Intel Department propagating fake UFO stories for so long that even he has a hard time separating fact from fiction. Especially when he’s approached by a beautiful woman named Vita, who claims she’s been sent from another planet to liberate Earth.

Recent Press

  • Publishers Weekly – “The tense, sparse prose of this novella—which explicitly names its inspirations in the aesthetics of Michelangelo Antonioni’s “beautiful emptiness,” William S. Burroughs’s theories, and the porn and B-movies of the 1960s and ’70s, as well as the tropes of alien encounters in early SF—matches its strong themes of loneliness, paranoia, and the search for identity in a world of deception.” – Full Review
  • Dead End Follies – “Seb Doubinsky’s always been a critique of modern politics and the tyrannical fallacies of consumerismMissing Signal is another addition to that nuanced, but powerful legacy as it’s a novel about being told what to do and who to believe, which doesn’t lead to any satisfying answers if you don’t proactively choose your own path through a maze of make believes and misinformation.” – Full Review

Praise for Previous Books in the City-States Series

(Review of The Song of Synth) “Doubinsky’s dark, drug-soaked fable will remind American readers of Philip K. Dick. . . at once gritty and dreamlike, somber and sexy, this is a powerful tale of guilt, addiction, and self-discovery.” – Publisher’s Weekly

(Review of The Song of Synth) “Seb Doubinsky is a great writer, both rambunctious and subtle, who can do anything―and often does, playing with genres and literary conventions at will. Read his work. Read this book.” – Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times-bestselling author of the Southern Reach Trilogy
