Guest Author - Tevis Shkodra

Tevis Shkodra is a fellow Solstice author whose humanitarian work provides the backdrop for his newest novella, Symbiois. This story canvasses the complexities involving how companies are constantly growing into multi-million (or billion) dollar enterprises while the middle-class continues to diminish, and the dichotomous extremes of wealth in comparison to the ever-increasing poverty levels. I know right! Will be reviewing this baby shortly.


It is often when individuals are consumed with their daily lives, that they miss the camouflaged world beneath their feet. Ohm, a mentally unstable lower-class worker, has always considered himself ‘normal’, yet he always feels as if he lacks a purpose in life. 

Unlike the others, Ohm is unsatisfied with his life, and sees himself as a small cog in the totalitarian machine overseeing his life. His curious nature leads him to The Brotherhood, a secret organization dedicated to changing the regime. 

Ohm is caught in the middle of a war he was previously unaware of, and his life now depends on his ability to keep a secret. 

Symbiosis’ pages practically turn themselves, leaving the readers questioning their own sanity.
