A Winner of the 2016 Alex Awards
Nightmarish villains with superhuman enhancements.
An all-seeing social network that tracks your every move.
Mysterious, smooth-talking power players who lurk behind the scenes.
A young woman from the trailer park.
And her very smelly cat.
Together, they will decide the future of mankind.
Get ready for a world in which anyone can have the powers of a god or the fame of a pop star, in which human achievement soars to new heights while its depravity plunges to the blackest depths. A world in which at least one cat smells like a seafood shop's dumpster on a hot summer day.
This is the world in which Zoey Ashe finds herself, navigating a futuristic city in which one can find elements of the fantastic, nightmarish and ridiculous on any street corner. Her only trusted advisor is the aforementioned cat, but even in the future, cats cannot give advice. At least not any that you'd want to follow.
Will Zoey figure it all out in time? Or maybe the better question is, will you? After all, the future is coming sooner than you think.

This is as good as John Dies and Spiders. The metaphors get out of hand extremely early on, and the terrible jokes are amazing. I just finished reading it, and already have 30 favored quotes highlit, with more to come on rereads. I already am looking forward to a sequel. For those looking for a spoiler free plot summary, here goes. Zoey deals with sudden wealth and the worst humanity has to offer upon the death of her biological father. Explosions, super villains, car chases, collapsing buildings, cat magnets, budding romance, bad puns, holographic Santas, katanas, double and triple crosses, and sheer awesomeness ensues. If that doesn't intrigue you, then clearly you are no longer fit to be considered sentient.
“Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits” is a fun mix of action and science fiction. The characters are ridiculous and interesting, the plot is fun and well thought out and the violence is well…futuristic. Combine everything and you get a crazy story only David Wong can deliver. If you’re looking for a sci-fi tale with a ton of action look no further.
Insanity in novel form. That is th only way to describe the work of this amazing author.
Lots of fun. David Wong's unique humor and style are very present in this awsome romp through the near future. I highly recomend this novel, and can't wait for his next.
