In a universe where space-time arises from entanglement-the last thing you want to do is start pulling on loose strings.
Abbay, a newly-forged fifth-dimensional being, believes her life as a covert agent at the Interdimensional Observer Network is going well, or at least as well as can be expected for an entity entangled with a narcissistic partner and a group of rogue operators.
When the mission to open a bridge between Abbay’s world and the universe as we know it goes wrong, the finger-pointing begins. Her manipulative partner O accuses Abbay of destroying an essential section of space-time. Unsure what to believe, Abbay must now choose to deny the charges and let the world unravel or do the seemingly impossible: return to the Overlap Section, Lake Bled Slovenia, where the unraveling began.
To repair the damage and clear her name Abbay returns to the Overlap Section for one last mission. Observing five people who have no idea they are at the center of a multidimensional operation; unhappy wife, a workaholic humanitarian, a ghosted girl, a woke bloke, and a narcissistic physicist, all of whose lives and lies start to echo something familiar, something closer to home.
With no access to her memory, Abbay must rely on her playlist and intuition as she navigates their arcs of time, attempting to weave the tapestry of space-time back together one thread at a time.
We matter and everything else is an artifact of perspective.
This is story about dark matter. It’s a quest to find it, journey into it and once you are there it asks questions of what do with the invisible dark -matter that is. Told through a constellation of omniscient and at times unreliable third-person narrators this debut novella explores the idea of mattering both in a metaphysical and a classical sense.
