John August - The Variant (Short Story - $0.99 - Kindle/PDF)

Noticed this on the Kindle bestseller list.

He has links to the $0.99 Kindle or PDF version on his website along with a free 13 page sample

After 35 years working at the Central Library, Vincent Lewis has perfected the art of unremarkability. But when a terrified woman falls through his bathroom ceiling, he's forced back into a life of gunfights, double agents and paranormal research. The secret he's been keeping for nearly four decades might reunite him with his lost love, or kill millions.

This new short story by John August falls into the genre of paranoid "spy-fi" popularized by writers like Jorge Luis Borges and shows like The Prisoner and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

== About the Author ==

John August is the screenwriter of eight feature films, including Go, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride. He wrote and directed the 2007 movie The Nines.

He can be found on Twitter, @johnaugust
