The Man in the High Chair and Other Tyrannies
By Kurt Fawver
Five short pieces of related fiction from Kurt Fawver, including a reprint of the titular story that originally appeared in Resist and Refuse #1 in 2017 (and was seen by very few people). Nick Gucker did the awesome cover art and two interior illustrations, and Dan Sauer did the excellent cover design.
“A Brief Press Conference with the Chief of Police”
“The Man in the High Chair”
“The Senator’s Modest Announcement”
“How the Next War Started, How the Next War Will Never End”
“The State of the Union on the Last Day”
These stories speak to our current national experience in the USA and the chapbook is not an uplifting read, which is precisely why I wanted to publish it now. Our current state of affairs is extremely dangerous as the nation continues to slouch towards actual, literal fascism.
66 pages, includes high-quality cover art print and a random Dim Shores sticker.
This is a benefit for the California Coalition for Women Prisoners: “We monitor and challenge the abusive conditions inside California women’s prisons. We fight for the release of women and trans prisoners. We support women and trans people in their process of re-entering the community.”
