Ben Marcus and the dystopia avalanche of 2012

Posted by Jason Diamond

The bad news: the world is a total mess right now, and since it’s 2012, you will be reminded every day until late December that the world is suppoed to end this year.

The good news that comes from that sense of impending doom: there’s no lack of dystopian literature.  As of the 3rd day of the new year, Miles Klee’s Ivyland and The Flame Alphabet by Ben Marucs look like they’re going to be at the top of the “Books About Things Going to Shit” list in 362 days, and that makes us very happy.

Above is the trailer for Mr. Marcus’ book.
