The Weightless World

“Raymond Ess is going to kill me.” This is what Steven Strauss thinks. He also thinks that he and his boss Raymond Ess are on a fool's errand. They're in India to buyan anti-gravity machine — something Steven is almost certain doesn't exist, and something Ess is convinced will save his company from bankruptcy. It's hopeless, everyone knows. At least, Steven knows it — and he knows, too, that his boss's grip on reality is growing weaker by the day. His fixation on anti-gravity devices is just one more symptom of a failing mind…… Or is Ess, in fact, as crazy as he seems? As you readThe Weightless World, you'll start to wonder. This fantastically entertaining debutstretches the limits of possibility. It shows that when technology becomes indistinguishable from magic, miracles can happen. It shows us our world anew. And as it does, it weaves a tale of friendship, betrayal, and loss that will move the ground beneath your feet.

It’s the sort of chuckle that makes people who don’t know what he does for a living think Ess must be an entertainer, a late-night DJ, a croon-the-hits club singer. Then he straightens, cla
