This week's choice is -
Where Futures End - Parker Peevyhouse
ISBN - 9780803741607
Publisher - Kathy Dawson Books
Release date - February9 2016
Perfect for fans of innovative storytelling, like Marcus Sedgwick's The Ghosts of Heaven and David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks, Where Futures End is a collection of five time-spanning, interconnected novellas that weave a subtly science-fictional web stretching out from the present into the future, presenting eerily plausible possibilities for social media, corporate sponsorship, and humanity, as our world collides with a mysterious alternate universe.
Five teens, five futures. Dylan develops a sixth sense that allows him to glimpse another world. Brixney must escape a debtor colony by finding a way to increase the number of hits on her social media feed so she’ll attract corporate sponsorship. Epony goes “High Concept” and poses as an otherworldly being to recapture her boyfriend’s attention. Reef struggles to survive in a city turned virtual gameboard. And Quinn uncovers the alarming secret that links them all.
These are stories about a world that is destroying itself, and about the alternate world that might be its savior. Unless it’s just the opposite.
Uh, yes please! Love Marcus Sedgwick, love David Mitchell ( although I still haven't read Bone Clocks...) so when this cover caught my eye whilst looking up a completely different title I had to add it to my wishlist immediately. Where Futures End actually sounds like one of those rare things, a unique read, and I will definitely be picking up a copy asap!
