Dead Americans

A collection of the critically acclaimed dark, weird and surreal short fiction of Ben Peek. It presents a world where bands are named after the murderer of a dead president, where the work of Octavia E. Butler is turned into an apocalypse meta-narrative, and John Wayne visits a Wal-Mart. It presents a world where a dying sun shines over a broken, bitter landscape and men and women tattoo their life onto their skin for an absent god. It presents Mark Twain dreaming of Sydney, and answers a questionnaire you never read.

Ben Peek is the Sydney-based author of Black Sheep, and, with Stephanie Campisi, Above/Below. Immolation, the first novel in the trilogy “Children,” will be released mid 2014.
