Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A generation ago, the zombie uprising proved anticlimactic, the undead posing no real danger to the living. In stark contrast, efforts to deal with vast number of corpses — by catapulting millions of into them into space — had the undesired side-effect of dooming the people of Earth. WasteCorp, the corporation that devised and managed the space solution, is dedicated to urging people on their way; Sellers wander the world convincing entire communities to commit mass suicide. Glenn Dixon is one such Seller, a master of manipulation stalked by the novel's hapless narrator, himself once a Seller turned bounty hunter. Dixon proves finely adapted to his blighted world; his opponent is less fortunate, consigned to defeat and humiliation as he documents the last days. Barely more than a novella, the work nevertheless manages to provide a massive tome's worth of violence and depravity. Uninhibited by any sort of logic or realism, Burgess (Pontypool Changes Everything) is free to revel in torture and execution, dismemberment and nihilism, crafting a self-slain world where the worst prosper and would-be altruists are harshly punished. The author shows considerable talent at this questionable pursuit, offering the world a memorably repellent, absurdist vision of a dying planet. (Oct.)


Praise for Tony Burgess

“. . . Burgess’s prose is confident, poetic and even, at times, beautiful.”
49th Shelf

“Tony Burgess . . . is one of this country’s most distinctive indie-alternative voices.”
The Toronto Star

“Burgess brings something original and fresh to the psycho-noir tradition . . . . With books like Waste, Bloody Women, The Disassembled Man and short stories like ‘Hold You,’ ‘Pillow Talk’ and ‘Carpaccio’ it looks like the psycho-noir is experiencing a bit of a renaissance for those readers willing to seek them out and People Live Still in Cashtown Corners is a worthy addition. Recommended.”
Spinetingler Magazine

“After finishing People Live Still in Cashtown Corners, you won’t know whether to applaud Burgess’ impressively large literary cohones or arrange to have him committed to the nearest mental health facility.”
―Paul Goat Allen, Barnes & Noble Community Blog

“Tony Burgess combines lyricism with graphic, cinematic violence.”
Quill & Quire

“Buy all his books.”
Now Magazine
