Reality is broken…
For Marlon Smith the afterlife is a beach. The computer-generated world his consciousness inhabits provides for his every need. But flaws begin to appear in the fabric of his reality. Flaws that shouldn’t be possible are showing up. And he seems to be the only one who sees them.
Marlon must move quickly, before his actions are spotted by the program and his memories of the flaws are edited out.
As he learns more about how the afterlife functions, he learns some interesting facts about his ties to the afterlife.
Marlon must diagnose and fix the problems before the lives of billions of people are snuffed out.
This novella may only be fifty-two pages long, but the author does an amazing job of world-building.
The concept of the afterlife being a virtual reality that after death one can “live” forever in any setting is an interesting one. Who wouldn’t want to know that once they die they are not simply gone? Who wouldn’t be thrilled to know that when their loved ones also died, that they would be able to see them again?
But, as with anything else, there are unexpected and unintended consequences to creating the afterlife.
This story is a quick read that grabs and keeps the reader’s attention from start to finish.
I rate this novella as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
