From the Inside Flap
"One of the best writers of our generation." --BRIAN KEENE
, author of The Rising
and Darkness on the Edge of Town
"PERFECT UNION is Cronenberg's THE FLY on a grand scale: human/insect gene-spliced body horror, where the human hive politics are as shocking as the gore. This book would make Marx and Thoreau's heads explode. In other words, astounding." --JOHN SKIPP, NY Times Bestselling author of The Long Last Call and The Bridge
"Cody Goodfellow's imagination is a freeway flyer, and his prose is a ride on a rocket-sled. He's one of the two or three god-damned best writers in the Genres today." --MICHAEL SHEA, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Nifft the Lean and Copping Squid
"PERFECT UNION is a weird masterpiece. Influences ranging from Cronenberg body horror, Evil Dead-style gore comedy to a fascinating political dissection of Marx and Thoreau make this a genius horror novel destined to be...loved by the readers ready to get in the ring with Cody. An intelligent socio-political dark Bizarro masterpiece and one of the most original horror novels in years."--MONSTER LIBRARIAN
"Cody Goodfellow is untouched as a breathless reporter of violent action, relating it in hurtling prose full of striking and sometimes hilarious metaphors. The author has hybridized Splatterpunk with the techno-thriller, and the result will not soon leave your memory."--STRANGE AEONS
More About the Author
Cody Goodfellow is a hollow, wasted shell of a human being.
His appearance, since he realized he only had to groom himself for occasional author photos, would shame an island castaway.
His conversational skills--since he discovered that any idea, emotion or anecdote worth sharing is also a valuable commodity--have atrophied to functional nonexistence. He sits, stares, listens, hoping to steal yours.
His real life experiences are insignificant in the face of those he imagines for himself and others.
His loved ones are hostages.
He is, for all intents and purposes, a patient undergoing a lifelong operation; and also the surgeon, methodically transplanting all his major organs into affordable trade paperback canopic jars.
He lives in Los Angeles.
