The steely coolness of humanity, the loneliness of the masses, and the comfort found in solitude. It blinds and reveals, hurts and heals. Brace yourself for what you’ll find on the other side of . . . Gleem.
Freddy Carrasco brings a new world to life in this collection of three stories ("Born Again," "Swing," and "Hard Body") that are science fiction, but not really.

". . . the itchy energy of youth is ready to burst forth, right off the page."

"Why isn't this on more end-of-the-year books lists...?"
". . . Carrasco has such a singular style of art that is unlike anything else out there . . . confident and kinetic . . . The future he portrays . . . might not be perfect, but at least the clubs are still open, and the drugs are good."
