Cutting across genres, The Night Has Seen Your Mind is a literary fusion of science fiction, existential terror and psychological thriller in the style of the 'New Weird'.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08RSKDCPZ

Tech billionaire, Mattias Goff, has invited five creative professionals - programmer, pianist, writer, actor, and photographer - for a month-long residency at Crystal Falls, his Arctic retreat. Researching brain waves, and especially the enigmatic gamma wave, Goff asks his guests to wear a kind of EEG cap in order to record the electrical activity in their brains while they engage with their respective disciplines. Although they will be paid $5Million each for the experience, they all start their sojourn a little wary - some more than others. Cut off from the outside world in the stunningly beautiful, if stark, Alaskan winter landscape they immerse themselves in their work. Soon, though, reality seems to be shifting. What is Goff really researching? Are his guests only being observed, or manipulated?

Chapter One - Anchorage

Open sea gave way to a series of white-capped islands that from thirty-four thousand feet looked like tiny clouds in a shale blue sky. On the in-flight entertainment screen the plane’s icon edged off the Gulf of Alaska and onto the coastline, and when the mainland slid into view in the window, rapidly filling it, the enormity of his undertaking finally came home to Chris Allen.
A sigh of incredulity escaped him. Northbound, late November, he’d known there would be snow and mountains and ice, though he never imagined anything as awful as this. Beneath the plane spread a spiky wilderness of peaks, every one of them wreathed in snow and sharpened to a mean tip. A forest of broken teeth, far as the eye could see.
This is madness, he warned himself.

It is winter and the days are fleeting, the nights wide and deep. As the guests immerse themselves in their work, as the temperature outside plummets and the aurora glitter, the five delve ever deeper into their memories, their desires, their fears.

And all the while, the vast night intensifies.

"What a story! This is a compelling psychological thriller and if it was a movie, you would be watching it with a thumping heart, hands hovering over your face."

"My first impressions and speculation on how this would all play out were somehow both met and wonderfully thrown out the window. I struggle to list all the things I like without giving away spoilers."

"What I liked the most were the characters - the author took great pains to make them all as different from each other as possible, they all have unique voices and personalities and develop in their own unpredictable ways. You will like some of them, empathise and perhaps get annoyed with their actions, and will want to find out what will happen to them in the end."

from Reading Tonic - book reviews

Now also available in paperback.
