We are very happy to (officially) announce the title of David Gullen’s forthcoming first novel, as well as reveal the cover.
‘Shopocalypse’, by David Gullen, is a near-future story of fast cars, consumerism and nuclear war – with a cover by the amazingly talented Ben Baldwin.
Novik and Josie have a lot of catching up to do. After two years in jail she has waited for his release and never ever wants him to go back in again. In the America of the near-future, being a decent person can cost you dearly.
A stress-filled encounter with some “Old-fashioned Boys” at a chain eatery turns their best of intentions upside-down: they’re now on the run and in possession of a super-hot sentient muscle car and 190 million dollars, covered with a potent psychoactive powder.
Shopocalyptic road trip, anyone?
David Gullen has written a witty and observant novel that effortlessly waves a tale of geo-political destabilisation, shopping, performance art police, well-meaning automobiles, cool killer robots, eco-terrorists, and the importance of storage-space.
‘Shopocalypse’ is published under our Monico imprint, and will appear as both a paperback and an ebook from all good retailers later this year.
