Nudge-Books’ Linda Hepworth’s review of Missing Signal by Seb Doubinsky, the latest in his City-States cycle, warms the cockles of our heart! Ms. Hepworth gave the book 5 big stars. It is a wonderful near-future tale of Agent Terrence Kovacs, who is in a real rut of an existential crisis when a gorgeous self-proclaimed alien named Vita shakes up his world. Literary dystopian fiction at it’s finest. The book releases on 8/28/18 but you can preorder a copy now.
“This blurb would not normally attract my attention because sci-fi is not a genre which appeals to me. However, having read several earlier publications from Meerkat Press (all outstanding), when offered the opportunity to read an ARC of this story I leapt at the opportunity. I knew I didn’t want to miss out on what could prove to be novel which would enjoyably widen my reading experience. Missing Signal has done just that – indeed, I’m delighted to have discovered an exciting new voice in Seb Doubinsky’s unusual novella. This is not a traditional sci-fi story but is one which offers a disturbing glimpse into a dystopian city-state future which reflects, albeit in an exaggerated way, so much of all that is disturbing in our 21st century world.” -Linda Hepworth, Nudge-Books
