    1. I enjoyed this story from the very beginning - I was immediately intrigued, and I did not feel the action lagged at all. The writing is just descriptive enough to paint a vivid picture, but not so flowery that I was dragged down by details. Likewise, the characters are developed just through the action and not through going on and on about their prior life, so the detail level was just right. I enjoyed the inclusion of technology in the story but didn't feel over my head (which can easily happen [...]

    2. This is a great short story, about what happens when Matt and Charlie go looking for towns that are shown on a web mapping service, but which don't actually exist.It was really rather refreshing that one of the main characters (Charlie) is female and a computer geek.

    3. This ebook was produced as part of a Kickstarter project. The story is built around the non-existent town of Argleton that for awhile showed up on Google Maps. A couple discover this town by accident, and while there is no town, there is WiFi, and a mysterious phone app. This leads to a real mystery and some strange events. The ending was interesting! A quick read, and free!

    4. Quick but enjoyable pace, easy to read but not simplistic. The story is centred on a couple who find a town on google maps that doesn't appear to exist in reality so they begin an investigation that will change their lives.Highly recommended.

    7. Produced via the first Kickstarter project we supported - ah, those were heady days. Begging for a sequel, methinks.

    8. I enjoyed this quite a lot. Flatmates Matt and Charlie go in search of Argleton, a town that appears on GeoMaps, but doesn't actually exist, and get drawn into a puzzle crossing the country.
