Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982034881, Paperback)ADVANCE PRAISE
"Shya Scanlon's brilliant first novel inhabits the skin of science fiction while setting off fireworks more extravagantly imagined and coolly displayed than those ever fired into the night air by any conventional SF novel. He zooms far beyond fiction's usual old-fashioned feeling-states into a bright dazzling world that might have been plotted by a consortium of William Gibson, Philip K. Dick, and Don DeLillo. If there's any justice, Scanlon is going to become a hero to his peers: he's pointing down the path many of the youngest, hippest writers in Brooklyn still have not as yet realized they will need to take. FORECAST indicates their future, though: this is where they'll be going."
-Peter Straub, NY Time Bestseller, author of 'A Dark Matter,' 'Koko' and 'Shadowland.'
"In FORECAST, Scanlon invokes an absurd not-too-distant future that nonetheless seems altogether too believable and real. Tipping its hat to authors like Stacey Levine, China Miéville and Jonathan Lethem, Scanlon's novel is part Science Fiction, part noir, part road narrative and part love story. Whether speaking about an effete talking dog, an underground edu-musement park or the convoluted heartbreak of a man deep in love with the woman he's been trained to watch, Shya Scanlon's is a new and vital voice in fabulist *fiction."
-Brian Evenson, author of 'Fugue State' and 'The Wavering Knife'
