A Glitch in the World
by Alex Drozd
Living on the colony world of Janus and faced with the pressures of college enrollment, Stuart Fergesson turns to his friend Dwayne for help in coping with his depression and anxiety. Dwayne’s solution? Drugs. The hard kind. After the trip, Stuart finds the world no different than before, except for the feeling that something is wrong, a glitch in the world around him. While facing his new school life, a death in the family, and an overhaul in the political system of his home-world, Stuart discovers what the glitch really is.
A strange blend of hard sci-fi and tomorrow’s literary fiction, A Glitch in the World is an unsettling story filled with dark, philosophical undertones. It’s a novel that readers of idea-driven science fiction will love.
