Riassunto: THE STEEL BREAKFAST ERA by Carlton Mellick III (w/ tattoos by Pooch)

A nightmarishly absurd story that is like Re-Animator meets Naked Lunch during the zombie apocalypse.

The living dead conquered the Earth almost a century ago, leaving only small isolated communities of survivors spread across the shattered-earwig landscape. One such community has been locked away in a New York City high-rise. Breeding like cockroaches for many generations, their civilization has almost completely deteriorated into a mess of insane ones and those infested with parasites that mutate flesh into steel-string sculptures. There is nothing to live for, no chance for hope. Except for one man, not yet effected by the parasites, who finds hope after he creates a wife out of the human body parts that litter the hallways and gets rescued by a group of zombie-shredding warriors from Japan (where the citizens have evolved into anime-like mechazoid characters). This tattoo-illustrated avant-garde novel is cult author Carlton Mellick III at his darkest and most horrific.


The Hi-Fi Queen is resurrected after almost being killed in an ambush by another gang and rises once more to claim back the territory that was once hers. Set in a world of constant gang warfare and corporate subterfuge, she must first re-brand herself then assemble a new crew to help her in her fight. Pirate radio broadcasters, graffiti artists, black-marketing men and skaters alike are all caught up in her quest for revenge, for not only must the gang be strong ... but it must have a proper marketing campaign to match.

In HI-FI QUEEN, Logan takes us deeper into his world of industrial-style fiction, expanding upon the grounding set forth in his highly successful underground hit I-O and bringing it to another level with threads of dark, bleak humour.

Dal risvolto interno: "This flip book is a double-barrel shotgun blast of futuristic insanity. Both novellas are a delight, and suck you entirely into their respective unsettling universes. Mellick's is the more surreal, a cross between the mechanized horror of the Japanese film Tetsuo: The Iron Man and the apocalyptic zombie-fest Dawn of the Dead. He makes it work, and his main characters - however weird - are moving and oddly innocent. Simon Logan, the author of the stunning short story collection I-O, delivers a blackly humorous, campy-fun tale that still takes some very biting swipes at corporate mentality. In his future world, even street gangs need PR agents and fashion consultants, and the ultimate aspiration is to make it into television - in a weirdly literal fashion. One (or two?) of the most enjoyable books I've read in some time! Raw, exciting imagination run wild." - JEFFREY THOMAS, author of Punktown and Deadstock
