The Loom of Sorrows

Earth was dying.

Clouds of blood and lightning killed billions, squeezing humanity to the equator and extinction. There was only one place to go: a planet named Joshua 20.

It was a desert world of scalding steam and crushing ice. A few minutes under the giant suns would burn you to ash. A few seconds in the darkest night would freeze you solid.

Humanity burrowed underground and turned on itself. People became brutal, cruel, selfish. One man escaped that, became selfless, led humanity back home, and then disappeared.

Nobody knows the reason why.

For two hundred years, the memory of that reason lay hidden in the sand like a shard of glass. Uncovered by accident, it buried itself in the brain of its discoverer.

He has two weeks to understand it, to unlock the life and motives of its owner, or it will kill him.

Matthew Kagle is remarkable in that he has had many unremarkable jobs: short-haul driver, fast food cashier, janitor, accountant, and video game tester (just to name a few).

He picked up the pen (literally) when, as a UPS delivery driver, he was told to destroy a rejected shipment of 800 defective BiC pens but kept them.

Yes, they leak a bit, but he’s written almost all of his published works with them. Matthew lives in the outskirts of Tampa, Florida with his mother and two sisters.
