Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cody Luff focuses a keen and perceptive eye on a dark future, imagining a world where survival impacts and exacerbates social pressures and human behavior. In Ration, he's found an interesting spot to take a pulse on a world we can recognize, perhaps too easily. Luff is a fresh, unique speculative voice who brings both imagination and meaning to his exploration of life and the human spirit."
-- Sidney Williams, author of Disciples of the Serpent

"Cody Luff's debut RATION is creepy, sci-lit brilliance. He administers a slow, suspenseful drip of horror, that grows like a pool of black ink until we are all part of his world. I will never forget this peculiar, stunning debut."
-- Tammy Lynne Stoner, award-winning author of Sugar Land

"Ration presents a world cloaked in a particular darkness--exploited women, bleeding bodies, empty bellies, fear, and survival. It is a testament to Cody Luff's skill as a writer that a pervasive sense of compassion runs just beneath the surface of this horrific tale. A chilling, visceral novel, written from the heart."
-- Mo Daviau, author of Every Anxious Wave

"Reader, you're not ready for RATION. But it's time."
-- Jamie Yourdon, author of Froelich's Ladder

About the Author

Cody s stories have appeared in Pilgrimage, Cirque, KYSO Flash, Menda City Review, Swamp Biscuits & Tea, and others. He is fiction winner of the 2016 Montana Book Festival Regional Emerging Writers Contest. He served as editor of an anthology of short fiction with twelve contributors titled Soul s Road.

Cody teaches at Portland Community College and works as a story editor. He completed an intensive MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College. Cody grew up listening to stories in his grandfather s barber shop as he shined shoes, stories told to him at bedsides and on front porches, deep in his father s favorite woods, and in the cabs of pickup trucks on lonely dirt roads. Cody s work explores those things both small and wondrous that move the soul, whether they be deeply real or strikingly surreal.
