What People are Saying About This
"Seb Doubinsky’s Missing Signal is the latest installment in the City-State cycle and it is dystopian fiction at its most fragmented, wondrous and irrevocably humane. Doubisnky’s prose is lean, mean and often hilarious in the melancholy way of a Godard hero unable to escape his past no matter how fast he hurtles toward a Burroughsian future. Immersive and unputdownable noir sf from a writer at the top of his game."
“UFO conspiracies and the devil's drug Synth. Deep states ruling the surface world and tripled crossed info proxy wars. And the divisions. All those beautiful divisions, that each new day look more and more like the fencing of livestock pens. In Missing Signal, master social commentator Seb Doubinsky pulls us further into his near-future/probably-now European continent carved up not by current borders and bloody treaties, but by the social, political, and racial scalpel cuts of the City States, blending science fiction with current fact in his always intense, sometimes horrifying, and often quite tragic exploration of a doomed race dancing toward midnight, smiles fixed and glasses raised. Dystopia has arrived with a whimper, and no one scheduled the parade. Maybe after the next commercial break."
