Babouc's Vision
The year is 2041 - and the gods are angry. While Carissa scours the city garbage for food and pretty things to show her grandfather, Tom and April strive to prove themselves genetically suitable to conceive a child. Luis fights to protect his unborn son from the gangs. Nora sits alone in her dark apartment, old, tired, and waiting to die. And Izzy, how did he end up on the street? In the backroom of his appliance repair shop, Harl Babouc putters at his workbench unaware the Gods have chosen him to appraise the people of CynCity. Harl’s world turns upside-down as his mind explodes with the everyday lives of strangers. Struggling to remain sane, he must somehow prove the city’s population deserves to survive.

AuthorsReading

Babouc’s Vision provides a frightening recognition of the thinness of civilization, of how dysfunctional our “reliable” connections are, forcing us to take stock of the vulnerability of humans in the face of change. It is a poignant narrative about a not-too-distant future and it relates to many of the most urgent issues currently flooding today’s media. – AuthorsReading

Independent Book Review

“Babouc’s Vision is a strong collection of tales, in novel form. I love how everything starts coming together in the end. As the stories link up, human connection becomes a new theme, however tenuous.” – Independent Book Review

Literary Titan

“Babouc’s Vision” was thoroughly enjoyable and difficult to put down, which is always a winning combination. Even the more despicable characters were engaging enough that you cared what happened to them and the ones who were more sympathetic had you actively cheering for their success. “Babouc’s Vision” is an intellectually stimulating science fiction story.  – Literary Titan (5 Stars)

Honestly, the realism in Babouc's Vision might be too much for some readers. It's easy to see yourself in the characters, depending on where you are in life and especially given the dark, anxious world we live in today….. Glenn Searfoss does a wonderful job of making a case for humanity - the good with the bad, as they both reflect the truth of simple existence. - Katelyn Hensel for Readers’ Favorite (5 Stars)

I found Babouc's Vision by Glenn Searfoss a very peculiar, stimulating, and challenging read. I have never read anything like this novel. It's completely compelling, unpredictable, and a little bit frightening.…..Babouc's Vision by Glenn Searfoss is an absorbing, well-plotted science fiction novel set in a dystopian world that every fan of this genre should not miss. - Emma Megan for Readers’ Favorite (4 Stars)

The Manhatten Book Review
