Overview

The digital era: Analog is all but dead, but the rusted towers still strobe on the evening horizon. They project a conflicting myriad of hope, despair and eyeless ghouls who claim to see the world in gigahertz.

A small town in Vermont broadcasts prophecies of its residents' deaths. Rey, a cutlery salesman, seems to flicker at the center of every murder on screen. He thinks the town is rigged with cameras, or the locals are trying to set him up. But as the broadcasts grow increasingly surreal, and maniacs start showing up in town to remove his sensory organs, Rey starts to realize that the images pulsing beneath the static-riddled airwaves have woven him into a battle between people who believe that analog is the frequency of the gods.

What if it was no accident broadcast television took off so quickly, and it was still in use long after the technology was obsolete? What if it was a plan by the government to jam the transmissions human beings give off naturally in order to create a homogeneous society? The broadcast towers around the country are there for a reason... Some people give off stronger transmissions than others... A pretty cool concept, and one hell of a trip around the northeast quadrant of the country as these people find and kill each other. Why are they trying to kill each other? Analog broadcast television has ended. It’s the perfect opportunity to take control. The buildup is well-done. Our main character, Rey, has a good transition from not believing in the impossible to getting onboard with this new reality he has entered. He is characterized just enough to care about but not so much that the reader gets bogged down in backstory. This impossible reality is delivered gradually in tantalizing glimpses, and it’s just enough to pull the reader forward. A good story made out of a thought-provoking concept.
