In an un-named world, the narrator (also un-named) is engaged in a race with the Dubb, a fellow sixteen year old who is seeking the Convergence as they drive, at high speeds, along the Final Five.

There are several clever touches - a suicidal fox, which appears to speak to our hero - and the ‘Sublime’, the ...more

Became vegetarian after writing MEAT. Fond of meditation, unfathomable questions and cats.
