Jon Grady has some issues that cause him to think differently than the herd. A Professor Alcott from Columbia University recognized this and took him under his wing to build a gravity mirror. Everyone thought by now we would have Mr. Fusion and Hover-boards well maybe we do and some douche bags in the BTC, Bureau of Technology Control, have them locked away for a day when we can be considered mature enough to have them. They sure didn’t like what Jon Grady made being loose.
The BTC snatches Grady and Alcott up and offer each of them a choice. Work willingly with the BTC or go to a civilized prison they have called Hibernity. This prison is where Influx really breaks some new ground using a concept I first read in a short story ‘I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream’. I don’t want to drop any more spoilers.
Influx is a ground breaking, well written and narrated work of art. This one gets a five out of five. Great job Mr. Suarez.
