David Six has written a novel, In the Time it Takes to Blink, which will delight readers who focus on the clever use of language to tell an engrossing tale. No pun intended with the use of a word that contains “gross.” There are elements that could be considered gross and NSFW. This abbreviation (not safe for work) is not because of explicit sexual comment, although there is some of that. I use this abbreviation because of the graphic violence, some of which may involve sex. Someone at work peering over your shoulder and noticing the violent content you are reading might wonder about your daily interests. This novel is far out there but I describe it this way not as a criticism but as a way of warning readers this might be a rough ride. After reading this, you will look at confetti in new ways.
