Overview

It’s been 10 years since the world officially ended. In the last city on Earth, Jon Salt is addicted to Sadness, a drug that invokes its name, and obsessed with his lover, Michelle; both of which threaten to drive him insane.  Strange creatures and new technologies appeared in the last days of humanity and the widespread adoption of teleportation technology sundered the fabric of time and space, leaving a smattering of looping ghosts. It is a sad, monotone world, but the remaining populace is happy, thanks to the anti-depressants in the water supply.The last government on Earth has taken a special interest in a gift that Jon possesses: the ability to make his thoughts real. Jon must rely on that gift and the help of a few unlikely friends to stay one step ahead of those who desperately want to use him for something far more sinister than even he could dream…

Reviews

"Definitely a unique book and one to read a couple of times over, even if you have read this before." —the AfterImage

"This book made me doubt my own sanity and the very existence of the universe as I know it. But raging madness is a small price to pay for this quick, enjoyable little read." —Forever Young Adult

"Intentional Dissonance brings about an emotional complexity to the genre that no other sci-fi story has ever brought to the table. There's almost a poetic ache while you read about scientists and technology through Jon's suffering and his inability to control his gifts." —Critiques 4 Geeks
