"A richly detailed world full of thought-provoking tech. Straus's imagination and deft storytelling shine in this impressive debut!"
-Jason M. Hough, New York Times Bestselling author
ReInception (Winding Roads Stories, 2022) by Sarena Straus is not what you expect. It has no relation to the film Inception, but presents a technological world in which our habits and our personalities change through the use of, and advances in, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). This all sounds great. Stop smoking, quit drinking, lose weight, and control a gambling addiction by TMS. But it’s too good to be true when its creators turn the technology to a more sinister purpose.
