"The Extra"

Michael Shea is the World Fantasy Award-winning author of Nifft the Lean as well as other novels and many short stories.

He applied the Page 69 Test to The Extra and reported the following:
On page 69 of The Extra we glimpse the global control which the CORPS now exert, and Curtis, one of our protags, secretly decides to take the one path to wealth this brave new world allows him: to become an Extra in the new film of one of the mightier Corps, Panoply Studios. He hides his decision from his beloved Auntie, and just tells her, "I'm goin' out early tomorrow, and try to scare up some work."
Read an excerpt from The Extra, and learn more about the book and author at Michael Shea's website.
