I finished the first draft for my new science fiction novel, The Weight of the Universe, earlier this week and here, as promised, is the full prologue for the new novel.
The novel is centered around the idea of parallel universes created by each conscious decision and what happens when the multiverse–the big bubble that holds all those universes–gets full. Strange phenomenon begin happening around the world in which whole cities of people are either killed or dropped into comas without warning. A Scottish theoretical physicist works with a New Yorker who can shift between the realities in a race to stop the phenomenon before the entire world–maybe the universe–is destroyed.
I hope you enjoy the prologue and, as always, I welcome all feedback, whether it be about typographic errors, comments on the contents or execution, or disparaging remarks about the IQ of my monkey forebears.
