Amoeba-Ox Continuum, The

An investigation is opened into a series of deaths in an old workers' utopia...


Natalie Chaulieu has a new assignment. A series of deaths in an old workers' utopia has caught the attention of the central government and she has been chosen as the liaison between the government and the investigation team. On arriving, she is struck by a world more brilliant and poetic than she has ever known, but as the case progresses it becomes clear that the deaths are intimately connected to the utopia, which is itself suffering a slow decline. As the investigation continues Natalie is forced to question whether the brilliance and poetry are worth saving, and, if so, at what cost...


Trent Portigal delivers a book as strangely beautiful as its title. We have a main character in Natalie who keeps the plot moving, and there are lovely notes of uniqueness throughout. The Amoeba-Ox Continuum works as a blend of witty storytelling, reflexive science fiction, and page-traveling mystery/thriller. ~ JD DeHart , NetGalley

Praise for Trent Portigal's previous novel 'A Floating Phrase': ...A deftly crafted novel that explores the nature of art and fear...consistently compelling and fully engaging from beginning to end. ~ Midwest Book Review
