Listen to an exclusive excerpt of Jason Segel's new novel 'Otherworld'

This Halloween, you may be thinking of scares from the supernatural world, but what about the much scarier, and much more real, technological one?

Otherworld, a new novel from Kirsten Miller and Jason Segel (yes, that Jason Segel), imagines a world not too far ahead of our own, one where virtual reality can become your only reality. 

Inspired by the Oculus Rift, Segel and Miller have created a story that explores the darker side of technology. In Otherworld, a new set of virtual reality googles are being tested before hitting the mass market. When Simon’s friend Katherine, a nerdy gamer, disappears — kidnapped by someone or something inside that virtual world — he realizes this is far more than a game. 

The novel, the fifth collaboration between Segel and Miller, is on sale Tuesday. But you can listen to an exclusive excerpt of the audiobook below, narrated by Segel.
