Cannon Fodder by David L. Hayles
  

Synopsis

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.

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 *
