Today, I have a post-apocalyptic, urban fantasy novella to show off for Devin Tersteeg. Here’s a helpful quote to whet your appetite.
“Blending humor, science, and philosophy, Radio Sphere is a unique and compelling journey into the nature of humanity, in the grand tradition of Vonnegut.”
“An imaginative, humorous, and thought-provoking novella.”
If you can hear me then you must be alive. You’re alive, right? That’s good. Good. Good for me. There aren’t many of us left. The water is looking at me again.
The blue in the sky burnt away and now it’s all brown, everything is brown, past, present, and future. I don’t know what I’m going to do. If only Grandpa were here to help. I think I could get along better with a friend. You’ll be my friend, right? Just us, in this whole big world. We can do it together.
A wonderful and surprising novella, “Radio Sphere” reveals a shy, maladjusted girl into the leader she must become amidst the dying, surreal landscape of Earth modified by a deranged alien.
Meanwhile, a mysterious alien race observes the ruins of humanity and tries to make sense of what it sees.
Like others of their generation, Elizabeth, resourceful and determined, and George, dreamy and kind, struggle to find meaning in the madness around them. Together they will leave the relative safety of Boston, seeking answers. Something has waited for 200 years to provide those answers. Will Elizabeth and George survive their journey into the forgotten past? Or are some questions better left unasked?
Blending humor, science, and philosophy, Radio Sphere is a unique and compelling journey into the nature of humanity, in the grand tradition of Vonnegut.
“This novella was an imaginative thrill ride! I loved the fascinating characters and how the vivid descriptions made the author’s world come to life. Without question, however, the best part of this novella was the author’s sense of humor. Overall, I Highly recommend this one–especially for fans of Vonnegut.”

“Radio Sphere is an imaginative, humorous, and thought-provoking novella. I opened the pages and quickly found myself immersed in a futuristic world so unique and different that I was taken aback.” –
Frank Scozzari, author of From Afar.
“I really liked how the narration changed from alien to human throughout the story and you get to piece together what actually happened to everyone. Not a lot of authors can do that well, build a world and let the reader come to understand it piece by piece instead of just telling them everything that’s gone wrong recently.”
– Victor Espinosa, author of Greyheart.
“Author Devin TerSteeg brings together this world through his humor, catchy storyline, and brilliant storytelling. For only being a novella, I was left wanting more from it. Hopefully, he will continue to write about this new Earth and we can discover more. If you are looking for a new Sci-fi read, check this one out! You won’t be disappointed!”
– Amazon reviewer.
