Point 4 #1

0.4 (Zero.Four) by Mike Lancaster


If true this record will change not only the way we think about ourselves and the world around us, but it will change our history, our future and what it means to be human.

Two years ago tapes were discovered; an ancient technology that carried a story of the past, of events so shocking that if true would change everything. Known as the Kyle Straker tapes these were transcribed into an equally out of date information storage device known as books, the reason for this becomes clear as you learn this tale.

The only reason Kyle put his hand up was to allow his friend to save face as all alone on stage in front of the whole village Danny waited for volunteers. It was a bit embarrassing but what was the worse that could happen, it wasn't as if Danny had any really ability to succeed. But as Kyle and the three other volunteers on stage opened their eyes it was to the most disturbing sight they had ever seen. The world had changed, no, not the world, just everyone in it.

0.4 percent of people in the small village of Millgrove have remained unaffected, 0.4 percent of people in the world are unchanged, or so they thought, but what if there were a more sinister meaning to the label 0.4?  Part mystery and part thriller, this is science fiction at its very best. Both thought provoking and provocative, it is a story that will challenge all that you believe and leave you haunted with the possibilities. I literally could not put it down, an extraordinary read.
