Short story plus novel preview
"Robert T. Jeschonek is a towering talent." --Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Starship series
"Robert Jeschonek is the literary love child of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman--his fiction is cutting edge, original, and pulsing with dark and fantastical life." – Adrian Phoenix, critically acclaimed author of The Maker's Song series and Black Dust Mambo
"This story seems absurd until you begin to consider how much information everyone wants about us all the time. The ideas of privacy are becoming more important and less interesting to many people all at the same time and this story shows where we may end up, with only a few liberties taken to make the story more interesting." – Elton Gahr, Helium.com
"Jeschonek´s stories are delightfully insane, a pleasure to read…" – Fabio Fernandes, Fantasy Book Critic
