Two hundred years into a post-apocalyptic world, humanity struggles with diminished resources and shrinking ambitions. Radiation has poisoned minds as well as matter, and people are running out of the critical supplies of civilization.
Meanwhile, a mysterious alien race observes the ruins of humanity and tries to make sense of what it sees.
Like others of their generation, Elizabeth, resourceful and determined, and George, dreamy and kind, struggle to find meaning in the madness around them. Together they will leave the relative safety of Boston, seeking answers. Something has waited for 200 years to provide those answers.
Will Elizabeth and George survive their journey into the forgotten past? Or are some questions better left unasked?
Blending humor, science, and philosophy, Radio Sphere is a unique and compelling journey into the nature of humanity, in the grand tradition of Vonnegut.
It’s not often that I run across something as original and imaginative in the sci fi genre as author Devin terSteeg’s “Radio Sphere”. The story of Elizabeth, living in a post-apocalyptic world that is now controlled by aliens. Humans are now living to be older than two hundred years old yet many are committing suicide because they are going mad. Elizabeth’s brother tries to search for the truth about their history and this doesn’t end well for him but it does lead her to some answers. This was an incredibly surreal and well-written dystopian story. Definitely recommend.
