Glenn H. Mitchell’s first novel Nowhere dissects the mind of a killer, creating a complex anti-hero trapped in a game of psychological chess that has no rules. Manipulation, substance abuse, deceit, sex, torture and love are simply moves in a game that will determine the future of our species.
Nowhere is the name we’ve given to that tempting and frightening uncharted space beyond the planets we mine and the wars we wage. As our charts grow, Nowhere gets smaller, bringing us closer to an inevitable discovery we’ve increasingly anticipated and feared.
The ideal candidate to represent humans during that momentus first meeting would be the perfect specimen of our species: a great communicator, educator and diplomat.
Instead, an exiled war criminal is drifting beyond the charts and entering ’Nowhere’, unwittingly setting a course for an historic confrontation. Suicidal, alcoholic and sociopathic, Shaun may prove to be humanity’s greatest weapon against a sinister plot that will redefine his character and his perception of evil.
“Mitchell’s background in TV writing shines through in the pacing of this darker-than-dark novel. Strong dialogue, intriguing characters and a hero who is a suicidal war-criminal tells you that you’re not reading a run-of-the-mill Science Fiction author here. ‘Nowhere’ is definitely not content to coast by on tired SF cliches. A thrilling debut.” – scifi365.net
