Centre of The Universe…is a gripping telling of the post-internet apocalypse. It builds steadily to its genuinely frightening and shocking climax…

The CN Tower has collapsed after an organized attack on Toronto. Four people who were in a bar when the attack happened have been cut off from the rest of the world. The last communication they received: stay indoors. But that was twelve hours ago. The TV’s aren’t working, phones are out and a man with a gun patrols the street outside the bar. Wondering who would attack the city—and why—four people contemplate survival, sex, death, and the lives they no longer have.
