MEDIA REVIEWS
Beneath the entertaining wrapper of science fiction, Missing Signal is a masterfully written work, both provocative and rewarding. -- Susan Waggoner -- Foreword Reviews
"Crisp chapters cartwheel you in an incredible odyssey that gets wilder and weirder as it possesses you . . . Something about the novel abolishes distraction. Once you open the book, you are committed. No hard work, just a heart-thud moment, electricity, and you're hooked. In its tiny chapters pulsing with voltage, the narrative leaves nothing short. The reading is like a golden egg hunt, literary gifts tucked away in findable nests." -- Eugen Bacon -- Breach Magazine
"Seb Doubinsky's always beena critique of modern politics and the tyrannical fallacies of consumerism.Missing Signalis another addition to that nuanced, but powerful legacy as it's a novel about being told what to do and who to believe, which doesn't lead to any satisfying answers if you don't proactively choose your own path through a maze of make believes and misinformation." -- Benoit Lelievre -- Dead End Follies
(5 stars) "I'm delighted to have discovered an exciting new voice in Seb Doubinsky's unusual novella. This is not a traditional sci-fi story but is one which offers a disturbing glimpse into a dystopian city-state future which reflects, albeit in an exaggerated way, so much of all that is disturbing in our 21st century world. -- Linda Hepworth -- Nudge-Book Magazine
The tense, sparse prose of this novella-which explicitly names its inspirations in the aesthetics of Michelangelo Antonionia's 'beautiful emptiness,' William S. Burrough's theories, and the porn and B-movies of the 1960s and '70s, as well as the tropes of alien encounters in early SF matches its strong themes of loneliness, paranoia, and the search for identity in a world of deception. -- Publishers Weekly
