Novum is a stand-alone story, but it is intended to be the "pilot episode" for an epic scifi series. It was written as a short novel, or novella, and is approximately 30,000 words long (about 1/3 as long as my first novel, Cyberdrome). The novella itself has a long history in science fiction and is considered one of fiction's "most open-ended and compellingly discursive forms." I'm happy to be able to offer the digital version this first book for just $2.99 around the world (and just $7.99 for the paperback) as an open invitation to enter this new world and get to know its inhabitants. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Go to JosephRhea.com to learn more.
