UPDATE Jan. 11th: Hunger is now available on Amazon.com for the Kindle crowd.
Hunger is a medium-length collection: 8 stories, about 34,000 words.
Hunger was one of those things that should have been finished a few weeks before it was actually finished. The lead story, The Mask of Sisyphus, wasn’t originally supposed to be part of it. But I looked at the anthology with 7 stories and it needed something. It needed more words, for one thing!
The Mask of Sisyphus was perfect. Weighing in at a meaty 9,800 words–novelette territory–it’s just what I needed. And who doesn’t like a good story about a worker in a near-future fast food hell challenging his corporate masters? I don’t think anyone could pass that up.
Other stories in Hunger take you into the mind of a hopeless alcoholic of tomorrow, show you the dangers of genetically engineering chickens, reveal the dreams locked within mystical tomatoes eaten by a lonely widower, and more.
