The Late Projectionist

The Lumaville Labyrinth, Prelude

In this prequel to Quantum Deadline, our late-adolescent narrator, Chris F. (a.k.a. Kit Fergus), is a frustrated and slightly delusional would-be screenwriter coping with art, love, and life while searching for a leg up (or at least a crumbling foothold) on his foundering career. Is he condemned forever to a small-town existence and his career as a beleaguered movie theater projectionist? Or will he reach the escape velocity attained by his former girlfriend, now a world-class concert cellist? Meanwhile, he’s hearing voices – are they the interior chatter of a muddled mind, or the thoughts of others to whom he’s become psychically attuned thanks to radioactive coffee?
