Alt Lit: Frank Hilton explores the apocalypse

This week I want to start out with an excerpt from a new novel by the writer Frank Hilton.

I am beginning to fall in love with futurists lately,  their unflinching visions of what’s to become of society are interesting and hyperbolic but always insightful to the psyche of today. The artwork Dazed and Confused magazine chose to go along with the story is very striking as well.
