I-O [Input-Output] by Simon Logan

Published on February 15, 2011.
A collection of industrial fiction, exploring a world of dead TV's, hallucinogenic chemicals, sad machines and concrete wastelands of scrap metal.
The settings are as carcinogenic as a lethal poison, the characters constructed like semi-automatic pistols. Here the only future is that which is produced on the assembly line in one hundred thousand identical units from which you must choose.
