In a world where recording technologies are plagued by ghastly apparitions, their development was prematurely abandoned and they are now forgotten. Ravi Thakur, like most people, is not bothered with this. He is finally finished with a long and praiseworthy education, hoping to become one of the greatest literary figures ever!

But when his journey goes less predictably than he would like and he comes in contact with one of the accursed devices, he is unwittingly caught in revelations and dangers that will change his life…
