Literature® by Guillermo Stitch
Genres: Sci-Fi, Dystopia

Reading this story was like watching a Black Mirror episode directed by David Lynch, while getting stoned. (In case you are wondering, I love Black Mirror and also enjoy David Lynch’s stuff…)
With a touch of noir, this little story takes us on a crazy ride in a world where literature is banned. Reading a novel is a deadly offence. Why? No idea. It’s terrifying nevertheless. But sure as hell if Philip Marlow walked into one of the scenes and passed a banned book to Billy, I wouldn’t have been surprised.
Fast paced, and action packed, Literature® feels like a snippet out of a bigger story. Billy sort of comes across as a good natured idiot in the beginning, but as the stakes get higher, he steps up his game in this cat and mouse game. This old-timey sci-fi vibe is neat and all, but I need details.
I kind of feel like Jon Snow after this. I know nothing. What did I just read?
“The road is the page.”
Whoa. Told you. Trippy…
