I picked this one up on a recommendation and really stepped outside of my reading comfort zone in doing so. I am glad I did.
Whom the Gods Would Destroy is a sci-fi story with a slight horror element.
Damien, a graduate student studying astronomy, gets a surprise visit from his older brother after a 13 year absence. What his brother tells him and shows him changes his entire perception of his past and ultimately his idea of what his future holds as well as the future of humanity as a whole.
