Synopsis

While his friends lives are on hold, another reality is running constantly in Hollis's head, one that leads him to believe that maybe, just maybe, it's time to get serious. Unlike other self-indulgent, whiny narratives of post-graduation angst, Warp is a lucid and immediate novel of what and where a twenty-something's mind is when it isn't even made up yet.
