This fast-paced action novel is set in a future where the world has been almost destroyed. Like the award-winning novel Freak the Mighty, this is Philbrick at his very best. It's the story of an epileptic teenager nicknamed Spaz, who begins the heroic fight to bring human intelligence back to the planet. In a world where most people are plugged into brain-drain entertainment systems, Spaz is the rare human being who can see life as it really is. When he meets an old man called Ryter, he begins to learn about Earth and its past. With Ryter as his companion, Spaz sets off an unlikely quest to save his dying sister -- and in the process, perhaps the world.

A prophet dreams of two other planets and writes his visions of these two opposite planets. Although he sees many things of these other peoples, God sees more. God sees below into the hearts of men. The prophet finally sees his visions become flesh as the three worlds come together to battle upon Earth. And in the smoke of the already ongoing World War III, a victor is found. Who shall emerge? So I arose and looked in the Crystal Sea and saw darkness. And the Lord said, "Unto you, man, do I now reveal the last book of history, showing you what has come from the beginning. In the beginning, I did create the Heaven and the Earth as My Word has been written, but among the heavens I created only two other inhabited worlds. Earth was not alone. One planet's name was Plenarius and the other Hamartia. I gave the inhabitants, My first man and woman on each planet, the chance to have a free will to do what they wanted. I wanted to see if they would follow Me willingly. In the first year, all three planets fell into sin."

Danny Wallace wanted to write about a place so special and so crucial to our existence that it had never before been tackled: the Centre of the Universe. But then he realised that getting there might be a problem, and when he did, there'd probably be nothing much to write about. Until he heard about a manhole cover, on a small street, in a small town, tucked away in a remote part of Idaho. The manhole cover had been declared the Centre of the Universe. The mayor had the science to back it up. The town rejoiced. And the name of the town? Wallace. It was a cosmic coincidence Danny couldn't resist...
