Pseudo-City [NOOK Book]

Overview

In Pseudofoliculitis City nothing is as it seems and everything is as it should be. Today's forecast calls for extreme confrontation, with sandwich flurries and the threat of handlebar mustaches to the west. By turns absurd and surreal, dark and challenging, Pseudo-City exposes what waits in the bathroom stall, under the manhole cover and in the corporate boardroom, all in a way that can only be described as mind-bogglingly irreal.

Editorial Reviews

The Horror Fiction Review - Nick Cato
Pseudo-City is surreal, bizarre, funny, violent, at times scary, and best of all, very well written. Take one part Eraserhead, one part Brazil, a quarter Class of 1984, a dash of Liquid Sky and melt a few pages from the best of Burroughs and Leyner, and perhaps you'd be able to picture what's in store here. If you're looking for something unique, look no further.
Absinthe Literary Review - Reviews Editor
Think Terry Pratchett for the de Sade set, Douglas Adams with a hairball of Krafft-Ebing, or William Gibson bent over and buggered by Sergeant Bertrand. This is postmodern science fiction that takes more from William Burroughs than it gives away in free moustaches. Speculative fiction with a speculum for a bookmark…Not since Mark Leyner has there been such an able fusion of fantasy and satire.
