Cannon Fodder

by David L. Hayles

Cannon Fodder Synopsis

A college reunion that ends in a bloodbath... A superhero too depressed to save the city... A man so deep in debt he is prepared to strike a terrible deal... A job that no one dares take... A doomed expedition... And a death-row romance... In Cannon Fodder, the creator of The Suicide Kit takes us to a place where life isn't just cheap, they're giving it away.

Cannon Fodder Press Reviews

Imagine Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected adapted for the screen by Tarantino and you're pretty much there -- Laurence Phelan * Independent on Sunday * Genuinely excellent * The Sun * Sussex writer Hayles has a dark, skewed outlook on the world and combined with a fiendish sense of humour, it makes these stories well worth the time * Glasgow Herald * Hayles nails wildly different voices with a few short strokes, then washes it all down with a flagon of treacly black humour * Arena * Hunter S Thompson would have loved these tales. Beautifully weird and told in deceptively simple prose * Daily Express *
