Gob Fauna collects together 5 short stories set in an unsettling near-future landscape of undervalued service work even more precarious than our own.
The environs and characters are uncanny; the over-zealous middle management, pervasive surveillance and disposable humanity of late capitalism have prevailed and bloomed.
Interspersed throughout the texts are stark lino-cut images that appear as icons or talismans of the disregarded or broken while also depicting the persistent life forms surviving despite relentless hostility.
This book will be ready to ship in late August 2019.
