clean slate complex: a daynight novella: This is a stand-alone story in the daynight universe and is currently a free offering during this tour! (follow the link to smashwords).I actually read this novella first before reading "daynight" and would highly recommend doing it this way. It isn't that "clean slate complex" fills in information of "daynight," but that it's a great introduction to the world of The Second Chance Institute and an interesting facet of Second Chancers.I was a bit confused at first at why the word dystopia has been bandied about for this book as well as "daynight" in descriptions and a few reviews I skimmed. I think I've become so accustomed to people misusing the term as a synonym for "post-apocalyptic earth" that I forgot its true definition. dystopia - (noun) an imagined place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one. I don't want to say too much about the novella as it is a short, excellent story that I highly recommend. It's a short, 50 pages and really packs a punch. It revved me up to read "daynight."
