Luminarium (2011)
Alex Shakar
"This fascinating, hilarious novel, though set in the past, is the story of the future: technology has outlapped us, reality is blinking on and off like a bad wireless connection, the ones we love are nearby in one sense, but far away in another. Yet at the book's galloping heart, it's the story of what one man is willing to go through to find--in our crowded, second-rate space--something like faith. This novel is sharp, original, and full of energy--obviously the work of a brilliant mind."

Anneliese Mackintosh
"Mackintosh has written a beauty. If you’ve ever weighed two different eternities in your hand and had to choose which to love most, this book is yours."
