After word got out, every disaffected nut or neurotic within walking distance wanted to throw his or her self into the Reef, hoping to be transfigured, hoping to become something better than what they were.

Some emergents reported visions of former times and places, of great insight and enlightenment. Others came out as drooling idiots, their brains wiped of knowledge and experience. Some came out fused together; others were splintered into clouds of tiny animals. No two incidents were exactly alike.

Gareth L Powell's first collection of short stories is stuffed with mind-bending ideas and unforgettable characters. Ranging from the day after tomorrow to the far-flung future, these 15 stories are perfect for anyone with a craving for intelligent and thought-provoking adventure.

From noir-ish cops to disaffected space pilots, blind photographers, and low-life hackers, everyone here is struggling to find a little peace amid the tumult of the future. Download and start listening now!
