Long-term member Geoff Nelder‘s new novel ARIA: Left Luggage is now available in paperback and on Kindle from and

Published by LL-Publications, this intriguing science fiction novel is the first part of a trilogy, and it has a unique premise: infectious amnesia.

Here’s the blurb:

Today, Jack caught a bug at work. He catches a bus home. By the time he disembarks in the desert town of Rosamond, all the other passengers and the driver have fuzzy heads. Jack had caught an amnesia bug, and it’s infectious.

Imagine the ramifications:

The passengers arrive home infecting family; some shop en route infecting everyone they meet. The bus driver receives more passengers giving them change for last week’s prices and today’s amnesia.  Some passengers just started work at the power plant, the water treatment works, the hospital, fire station.  All to shut in weeks.

Ryder realizes what’s going on but can he persuade friends to barricade themselves in a secluded valley, hiding from the amnesia bug?

It’s fascinating stuff – and the video trailer is also worth watching:
