All light has disappeared, plunging the world into total darkness. No light can be seen, no stars and no sun, no electrical light, no reflections, nothing. As suddenly as light vanished, it returns. But it then starts disappearing with an alarming frequency creating growing unrest.
Humankind has always held a fear of the dark and now with good reason. Without light, crops can’t grow. People can’t see where they are and where they’re going. Protests and riots start breaking out around the planet as the search for an answer to light’s behavior dominates everything. Amid government, media, televangelists, and science, there are those who would seek to capitalize on this phenomenon for their own gain.
It will take Adam Faraday and his research team at Aura/Sonos to determine what is happening, and what he discovers is light is becoming sentient and that’s only the beginning.
This is the premise of my new book, The Light Inerrant.
Writer, author and photographer Bruce Meisterman is known for his non-fiction documentary book Arn? Narn. He has since turned to writing fiction. He has now written his second book of fiction The Light Inerrant.
All light, the sun, stars, electrical, and reflections, disappear only to return momentarily, again and again. Not surprisingly, fear spreads across the globe. It will take a dedicated group of scientists to discover light has become sentient. And that's not even the biggest surprise they'll encounter.
His first book of fiction A Coward's Guide to Living could best be described as Homer's Odyssey meets Thelma and Louise, minus Louise.
Most people start their mornings with a cup of coffee. Jacob Will's started with attending the funeral of his best friend. And in a letter left for him by the deceased, he was charged with getting his act together - big time. It would take him across the country into places he never thought of visiting, interacting with people for the first time in a genuine way, and finding and then losing love.
