It’s no surprise that humor columnist and frequent contributor to Cracked.com Wayne Gladstone chose satire as the vehicle for his first novel, NOTES FROM THE INTERNET APOCALYPSE. What’s unexpected is that he imagines a world suddenly without his main publishing outlet, and something we’ve all grown hopelessly addicted to: the Internet.
The disappearance of the ‘net, as told by first-person narrator Gladstone (the author’s byline in many of his articles and essays) came quietly and without warning. Everybody woke up one morning … and the Internet was simply not there. No combination of keystrokes — or other corrective action — could bring it back.
