Product description



DANTE magazine: Fusing horror, psychology and new age religion, this is a novel that repels as much as it fascinates… definitely not for the squeamish... a world where pornography is mainstream viewing, money is valued above self-respect while goodness hovers near the edge of extinction

FLUX magazine: an allegory-laden satire, with impressive character development, twists, and a hefty dose of black comedy... Christopher Ritchie has marked himself out as a rising star in fiction

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

2015 BOOK AWARD WINNER 2013 BOOK AWARD FINALIST Christopher Ritchie: "I've always been a writer, as long as I can remember. Writing short stories as a child, irritating my teachers with overly long descriptive passages, and attempting to translate my talent for mischief onto the page. Thirty or so years later, I wrote a book, and then another one. Now I'm the kind of person who gets taken away by things - by TV shows, movies, books, videogames... I get lost in these worlds. I love getting lost in them. They fuel my imagination, they inform my dreams, and they open my mind to infinite possibilities. And so my debut offering, House of Pigs, is genuinely the product of two dreams, one a nightmare. I woke up and started writing. Thirty eight years of influences, experiences and ideas came together. Light in the darkness. Redemption. Horror. The unknown. The things that scare me in my nightmares are now committed to paper and binary code. A little while after that, I wrote the award-winning (IndieFab Book of the Year Silver Award for Horror) The ordinary. It's a dark satire that explores the global spread of fear via a rampant media. Gallows humour, epic scale, and - well, read the reviews for yourself. I hope you enjoy my work. These books were immensely fun to write. Slowly I am creating a world for other people to lose themselves in and, hopefully, get a little bit scared just as I did. My next novel, Nuclear Rock, should be out some time in 2017. Thanks for reading." --This text refers to the paperback edition.
