Synopsis:

Author and journalist Nicholas Yong launches his second book at the Singapore Writers Festival. In Track Faults and Other Glitches, Nicholas Yong takes us on a journey into an alternate Singapore, where the impossible becomes real.

Deep in the heart of the Zombie Civil Service, a secret meeting is held to preempt an impending disaster. In the heartlands, a devoted Shiba Inu, a dog breed from Japan, seeks the divine in her quest for answers. And what happens when an MRT train goes underground, and never comes back out? This collection of 10 short stories transports you from the deeply familiar to the supernatural, exploring things that cannot and should not be.

The book retails for $19.90 (after GST) at the Writers Festival and will be available at major bookstores from 4 November.
