It’s not every day one of Supernova’s members launches a novel, so BANG THE DRUM for Andrew Macrae, who has launched his debut novel Trucksong this week, published by Twelfth Planet Press.
Trucksong is “a dystopian science fiction novel about lost love, AI trucks and the search for meaning in a post-apocalyptic Australia.”
Andrew has written an accompanying soundtrack on the Trucksong web site and also made available as a download the original version of the novel, which was written in ‘experimental’ language.
Recent interviews with Andrew and reviews of the novel are available here:
