Cannon Fodder by David L. Hayles

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.


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
