Dogs of Truth
Kit Reed is one of modern science fiction's most striking voices; her latest novel, "Thinner Than Thou", was acclaimed in both the mainstream and science fiction press. "Dogs of Truth" presents seventeen new or previously uncollected short stories by a writer "The New York Times Book Review" hails as "visionary." Three brand new stories are the centre piece of "Dogs of Truth". They tell of the "Grand Opening" of the world's largest mega-mall, study the relationship of a writer and his muse in "Getting it Back," and take a dark look at the child-free lifestyle in "The Shop of Little Horrors." Stories never-before published in book form include "High Rise High," about a student revolt at the ultimate "secure" high school; "Focus Group," where a star-struck fan and cutting edge biochips dictate what the rest of us see on TV; "Escape from Shark Island," where attachment parenting and the family bed are taken to extremes; and Precautions," in which germ-phobia reigns supreme.
