David Gullen‘s début novel, Shopocalypse, will be coming out from Clarion Publishing later this year. Ben Baldwin designed the cover which features Mr. Car, a favourite character among the T-Party beta readers.
Here’s what Clarion have to say about Shopocalypse:
Novik and Josie have a lot of catching up to do. After two years in jail she has waited for his release and never ever wants him to go back in again. In the America of the near-future, being a decent person can cost you dearly.
A stress-filled encounter with some “Old-fashioned Boys” at a chain eatery turns their best of intentions upside-down: they’re now on the run and in possession of a super-hot sentient muscle car and 190 million dollars, covered with a potent psychoactive powder.
Shopocalyptic road trip, anyone?
David Gullen has written a witty and observant novel that effortlessly waves a tale of geo-political destabilisation, shopping, performance art police, well-meaning automobiles, cool killer robots, eco-terrorists, and the importance of storage-space.
