Hello. This is P.T. Phronk. I’ve been busy with work and other projects lately, which has kept me away from writing every day. It’s funny what that’ll do to a writer’s brain. Stories itch at the inside of my skull, trying to find a crack to wriggle out of. Fully formed ideas push their way out of me while I shower. Plot holes I didn’t know existed pop open and keep me from sleeping. It’s all quite unpleasant.
Luckily, not all of Forest City Pulp lays dormant while I suffer. Co-founder cal chayce has been hard at work at a new novel, and whoa, it’s quite the novel. All the Fine Hungers is, on its surface, an epic tale of two people tossed into an inevitable collision course. Below the surface, it’s an examination of the terrors of power, privilege, poverty, and how they are maintained over generations. I could describe it as a more horror-tinged The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but it’s really doing its own multi-faceted thing, in a way only cal chayce can pull off.
Get it here, or read on for blurbage.
An old man—a monster—with power and privilege beyond imagination, preys on the weak, the innocent, the oppressed. One insatiable desire compels him above all others, and he’ll stop at nothing to achieve it.
A timid girl who fears everything—having struggled since the day she was born against poverty, racism, colonialism, and misogyny—must decide to continue living in fear, or fight for what she deserves.
Each owes the state of their existence to factors compounded by the generations—factors that have left them at extreme opposite ends of the social divide. When they cross paths, only one will survive.
