"I used to live in the future. Giant leeches ate my arms and then replaced them. Under the circumstances, this was actually a good thing. Anyway now I'm here and I'm looking for someone else from the future."

Inspector Margo Chicago is the smartest, surliest art safety inspector in the Bublinaplex, and things aren't going her way. The guy she thinks she's in love with has been banished. Her boss has been poisoned. Her cyborg has a limp.

Oh, and her arms have been devoured and replaced by a pair of enormous leeches.

As if that isn't enough, it's now up to Margo to save the Bublinaplex from art terrorists whose newest installation could drive humanity to extinction.

But things in the Bublinaplex are not as they seem. And when Margo uncovers the city's murderous secrets, she must face a choice: Should she save the Bublinaplex? Or should she join the revolution dedicated to destroying it?

Review quote

"Wild and strange and endlessly entertaining; an epic post-apocalyptic cartoon dream-satire -- like an Adult Swim version of Logan's Run meets The Matrix in the world of Thundarr the Barbarian. One of a kind!"

-Ben Loory, author of Tales of Falling and Flying

"Art world conspiracies at the warped twilight of civilization! Think Jonathan Lethem and Douglas Adams at a dinner party thrown by Judy Chicago. Leech Girl Lives offers an amped up vision of the reckless future."

-Tom Sweterlitsch, author of 'Tomorrow and Tomorrow' and 'The Gone World'

"This is a dystopia where endearing leeches bestow you with a zeal to live, deviant artists try to off their admirers, and even cyborgs can develop a limp. With every page the world unfolds, revealing another crease in the social fabric, another beneficially ravenous creature, and another crocheted (extinct) cat." - Teresa Milbrodt, author of The Patron Saint of Unattractive People

"Leech Girl Lives is a lot of fun - a romp through B movie territory in the best way, full of sci-fi and horror and a nice throwback sensibility, too." - Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World
