This is Noah Oakman sixteen, Bowie believer, concise historian, disillusioned swimmer, son, brother, friend.
Then Noah gets hypnotized.
Now Noah sees changes: his mother has a scar on her face that wasn't there before; his old dog, who once walked with a limp, is suddenly lithe; his best friend, a lifelong DC Comics disciple, now rotates in the Marvel universe. Subtle behaviours, bits of history, plans for the future-everything in Noah's world has been rewritten. Everything except his Strange Fascinations . . .
