A paid assassin called Krink loads up on viper-spit to tackle some uber-thugs; the governor of a prison ship introduces his inmates to haute cuisine; a farmer wakes up after an avalanche in north Wales to find he’s the last man alive.

The stories in this zany new collection range freely, almost chaotically, from the taiga region of northern Russia to the depths of despair. They are fuelled by a high octane imagination and an uncommon zest for language.

A thrilling collection from a stunningly original voice. A journey in stories through a fabulous and fascinating fictional new world.

Review:

"Gower's tales possess a primal, almost savage formality that's far removed from the calmer precisions and interiority of the mitred short story. They are also exhilarating and lush and knowing and in all ways bespeak authenticity." Richard Ford
