- New Nonfiction: New Taboos by John Shirley
Publisher: PM Press/Outspoken Authors | ISBN: 978-1-60486-761-9
Mixing outlaw humor, SF adventure, and cutting social criticism, Shirley draws upon his entire arsenal of narrative and commentary. The title essay, "New Taboos" is his prescription for a radical re-visioning of America. A new short story, "State of Imprisonment," is a horrifying and hilarious look at the privatization of the prison industry. The 1% get their comeuppance in "Where the Market's Hottest." His TEDx address (delivered in Brussels, 2011) presents his proudly contrarian view of the next forty years.
Also featured is our Outspoken Interview showcasing the author's transgressive sensibility, deep humanity, and mordant wit.

- Everything is Broken: “That staple of cautionary science fiction, the near future, becomes especially ‘near’ in this disaster novel from one of fantastic fiction’s most hard-hitting talents….EVERYTHING IS BROKEN emerges as a violent, vivid, viscerally upsetting and wholly unflinching nightmare of a novel, which profoundly illustrates the very point of having a civilization in the first place, and the risks we undertake by dismantling infrastructure in the name of short term savings. It’s not just a compelling read, but an important one...GRADE A.”—SciFi Magazine
