When most of the world inexplicably disappears overnight, only small patches of civilization remain.
May and Isak live on what used to be Holly Street. Since the Event, however, they have found themselves totally isolated, surviving day to day on what they can find in their pantry and their memories. May thinks that everything is going fine: apart from Isak’s weird disappearances and the humming only she can hear, they maintain a safe and secure existence surrounded by wasteland. Until one day, the phone rings…
After the Event, the convenience store became Ed’s home. Used to the busy life of a video game designer, the sudden lack of people and landscape around him is hard to deal with. Then, one day, he discovers that he can manipulate electronics using only his mind…
Pinot and Miller are on the run. They wander through the wasteland looking for supplies or anything smashable. Driven by Miller’s fear of retribution, they head west. Everything changes for Pinot when they come across an abandoned power station…
An introspective story about survival, identity, and memory, The Patch Project explores the need for connection and purpose in a sterile post-apocalyptic world.

"A glittering debut! In The Patch Project, Brittni Brinn crafts a fully realized post-apocalyptic world devastated by scientific hubris, in which survivors search for sanctuary while being pursued by their own past, present, and future. Brinn’s characterization is compelling. The mystery of self-identity challenges her survivors as they wander through a labyrinthine wilderness, where they learn to negotiate the benefits and dangers of their new and surprising powers." - André Narbonne, author of Twelve Miles to Midnight
"Intelligent storytelling, intricately-developed characters, and an overwhelmingly surreal sensibility elevate The Patch Project to the upper echelon of speculative fiction. Akin to the more outré work of Samuel R. Delany meets the literary precision in language of Phyllis Gotlieb. Recommended!" - Alexander Zelenyj, author of Songs for the Lost
"Through lush and personal writing, Brinn follows these lost souls as they question their lives before, what their lives have become, and what awaits them in their possible future – if anything at all. Adding to the dystopian framework is a dash of sci-fi wonderment as each character discovers a newfound ability – whether it be jumping forward in time or the power to heal. Fans of cerebral sci-fi are sure to enjoy The Patch Project." - Elizabeth J. M. Walker, author of This Night Sucks and She Dreamed of Dragons
"An unfathomable catastrophe strikes: The Patch Project tells the tales of a few people who manage to get by in its wake. Its vivid scenes hint at the larger storyworld beyond the safety of a house (or convenience store) walls. Refreshing and tantalizing, this story matches unexpected characters and scenarios with anticipated confrontations." - Brent Ryan Bellamy, PhD (English and Film Studies, University of Alberta)
