An utterly unique and captivating tale that explores what the world might look like if super powers were real. Tired of the same old superhero stories? Try something Different. The second industrial revolution is upon us. The Age of Machines has been usurped by the Age of Differents. Humans with extraordinary abilities now power our trains, heat our homes, and fill our bellies. Gavin Stillman is a Different, but he is not extraordinary, at least no one else thinks so. They think he bears a curse and they may have a point. Gavin has no subconscious - he must actively control the systems in his body. He has to tell his heart to beat, his hair to grow, or his eyes to blink. He’s relegated to a job as a human lab rat, but he knows he can be so much more. When he finds a trail of half-eaten human remains littering Los Angeles, he sees his chance to show what he can do. But will he survive long enough to prove he can be a hero?
