Pg. 69: David Oppegaard's "Wormwood, Nevada"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Wormwood, Nevada by David Oppegaard.

About the book, from the publisher:
Tyler and Anna Mayfield have just relocated from Nebraska to the sun scorched desert town of Wormwood, Nevada. They find themselves in a strange new landscape populated with old school cowboys, alien cultists, meth dealers, and doomsday prophets. Loneliness and desperation pervade Wormwood, and when a meteorite lands in the center of town, its fragile existence begins to unravel as many believe the end of the world is near, while others simply seek a reason to believe in anything at all.
