“The heart has reasons that reason cannot know.”
— Blaise Pascal
What if the next MRT breakdown was not just another simple breakdown?
What if your pet was saving your soul every time it hisses and barks?
What if the next person walking off a ledge only wanted to fly?
Track Faults and Other Glitches by Nicholas Yong is a journey into a different dimension in our subconsciousness. It offers an alternate reality; a perspective focused on everything outside of ourselves, and results in a not-so-fairy-tale package that’s difficult to let go of until we reach the end.
The journey begins as we discover a zombie’s greatest fear, accompany a man as he gets over his inhibitions for flying, and discover the greatest love a parent can have for their child. One by one, each of the ten stories in this collective evokes a plethora of emotions, leaving us wanting just one story more. Be prepared to laugh, tear, hide under the sheets, and cuddle your pet close while reading this quirky book, and remember to spare a kind smile to the next ordinary-looking stranger you meet; you never know who it’ll be on the inside. *wink*
A senior correspondent with Yahoo Singapore by day, Nicholas finds inspiration from daily events throughout his decade worth of experiences, as well as from spell-binding storytellers such as Neil Gaiman, Philip K. Dick and John Le Carre. By night however, he transforms into a lyrical caped crusader who founded the Geek Crusade and strikes amusement and fancy in the hearts of his readers. Aside from Track Faults and Other Glitches, Nicholas is also the author of Land of the Meat Munchers (2013) – a zombie tale set in Singapore, and was one of the authors featured in the recent Singapore Writer’s Festival in November 2016.
Track Faults and Other Glitches is now available for sale in major bookstores including Books Kinokuniya, Times Bookstores, and Popular Bookstore at a retail price of SGD19.90 (after GST).
