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. More

Review by: Byron Paul on Dec. 23, 2011 :
Logan is an exciting and refreshing new voice. Building from cyberpunk groundwork, Logan delivers new visions and dystopias in what is being termed as industrial-punk or dieselpunk. The collection starts and ends on strong notes, with some work that is a little raw and lacking direction, but overall very exciting and a writer I'm eager to read more from.

I also like the inability to tie these works down to a decade, often feeling a blend of Great Depression, WW2-era, and Cold War misery juxtaposed into an unknown dark future dystopian culture. Cyberpunk needs the invention of computers and the internet, Steampunk needs Victorian era steam-powered machines, but Logan isn't limited, and the reader is stuck in a future-past void
