Overview

The smart pulp shorts in this six-story collection will slam you against the wall, punch you in the gut, then whisper harsh truths in your ear. You will not learn anything from these stories. They will not make you a better person. There are no themes, metaphors, or lyrical language. There is a little philosophy. And lots of blood. The stories are transparent, an apple is an apple, a chair is a chair. A thing with tentacles and claws crawling out of the depths is not a representation of your deepest fears or postmodern society. You should start running.

This collection’s stories span multiple genres: crime, thriller, horror and sci-fi. Here are some teasers:
- A DJ playing a private party for wealthy Russians regrets getting the gig.
- A landlord discovers a cave of horrors in his basement.
- A girl is driven to crime by her love for a painting.
- On a far flung planet a trader has a strange encounter with a religious cult.
- A famous musician seeks immortality.
- Padding your resume with a volunteer experience was never so deadly.
