We were thrilled to see Publishers Weekly weigh in on Seb Doubinsky’s next installment in his City-States series, Missing Signal. The book releases on 8/28/18!
The tense, sparse prose of this novella—which explicitly names its inspirations in the aesthetics of Michelangelo Antonioni’s “beautiful emptiness,” William S.
