I’ve learned a new word. It’s called retro futurism. It basically defines to a past prediction of the future. Think of the Jetsons. The world they live in with flying cars and robot servants doesn’t exist. But back when they were on this is the public’s idea of the future. Well Odd Thomas Apocalypse has a Jules Vern feel to it. It’s filled with odd over the top machines with cooper fillings and wires that sound a lot like Tesla coils. Speaking of Tesla coils I bet that’s the ghost that keeps bugging Odd. More on retro futurism later.
