Flush - Francesco Verso - darmowy ebook

There's a new drug around, the mysterious Flush, whose effects are very controversial. Try it and everything will "sound" differently. Flush is a short story fiction, a striking piece of "flash fiction", to be read at full throttle, like you would do with a Trance sound track pushed up to 150 rpm. Flush is also a crossmedia project from Future Fiction Factory: born from a short story by Francesco Verso, it became an audiobook for L.A. CASE Production and then it transformed itself into an audio-video installation thanks to New Media Agency Fenyce.
