How would you feel if you lived in a community on a tiny island in the middle of a huge ocean, and you had no way of knowing whether there were any human beings living in the world?
How would you feel if no one was sure exactly how and why you even came to live on this island?
How would you feel if you met a group of people who are obviously not human – except that they really are?
How would you feel if the only way you could survive is by losing the only person you really care about?
How would it feel if you were swept so far out to sea that there was no possible hope of getting back, and no one even noticed you were gone?
A Speck in the Ocean is the new novel from Australian science fiction author Stephen Hitchings, to be published soon as an eBook.
