Za horizontem / Behind the Curve

The idea of a flat globe, supported by sacred animals, was replaced by the geocentric system with a spherical Earth already back in antiquity. But why are there more and more people who admire the flat Earth without even having read any of Terry Pratchett’s books? The protagonist, Mark Sargent, is a prominent member of the community of people who carry out new experiments to prove, with unflagging faith, that the Earth is not a globe. Mark makes YouTube videos, attends meetings, accepts gifts from people whose lives he’s changed and organises the first flat Earth scientific conference. Behind the Curve does not laugh at a ludicrous anomaly or the tragic lives of the characters, but tries to rise above it and figure out what went wrong.
