Publisher's Summary

When Oliver Naughton joins the Tenth Avenue Writers Underground, headed by literary wunderkind Wilson Knight, Oliver figures he'll finally get some of his wild imaginings out of his head and onto paper.

But when Wilson takes an intense interest in Oliver's writing and his genre stories of dragons, aliens, and spies, things get weird. Oliver's stories don't just need to be finished: they insist on it.

With the help of Minerva, Wilson's girlfriend, Oliver has to find the connection between reality, fiction, the mythical Cydonian Kingdom, and the non-mythical nightclub called M Pallas. That is, if he can survive the alien invasion, the ghosts, and the fact that he thinks he might be in love with Minerva.

Unfiction is a wild ride through the collision of science fiction, fantasy, thriller, horror, and romance. It's what happens when one writer's fiction interferes with everyone's reality.

Unfiction is the latest novel from Gene Doucette, the best-selling author of The Spaceship Next Door.

    Story
    "Perfectly Captured Tone and Well Matched Wit"

    It's not uncommon for me to grit and white-knuckle my way through an audio book's questionable mode of narration for the sake of a good story. Unfiction was pleasantly absent of such a compromise. Author Gene Doucette writes with sharp wit and the keen observation of a true student of the human experience. With nostalgic nods to all our favorite old stories Doucette playfully spins a yarn that is contemporary and new yet warmly familiar.

    Narrator Brad Wills captures Doucette's voice with impeccable timing and delivery. Clear and articulate, Wills delivers the story at a pace that matches the tone and feeling of the story: quick and abrupt when the action is hot, steady and deliberate when delivering the more introspective moments of the piece.

    It's unfortunate that Wills is not the narrator of Doucette's The Spaceship Next Door as it is next on my list of must listen audio books, as I have enjoyed both the story and its narration immensely.

    Listen close and look for the clues as Wills delivers the story of Oliver Naughton's constantly shifting reality in Gene Doucette's Unfiction. You won't be disappointed!

    Story
    "The Writers Guild takes a trip to Wonderland"

    I had a bit of trouble getting into this story for the first couple chapters but I'm very fond of the author so I pushed through. I'm very glad I did this is probably one of the most creative weaving of stories that I've read in a long time! one of those books that you like more and more as you listen and are sad when it ends

    Story
    "Wonderful."

    I had no idea where the story was going. Or stories. It had me laughing out loud in places. The section where the protagonist was trying to write a romance had me cracking up.

    I've been appreciating Steve Carlson's narration of Gene Doucette's other books and was surprised to find a different narrator. I almost didn't get it because of that and I would have missed out on this gem. Brad Wills was perfect for this book.

    Keep writing books and I'll keep reading them. Or listening to them.
