Leather to the Corinthians – by Tom Lucas

Leather to the Corinthians is an absurd postmodern fable that defiantly flips a middle finger at modern American life.

Celebrities grown in nutrient vats.
Holographic sex clubs where anything is possible.
A church that worships superheroes.
A military force of carnival clowns and plushie killing machines.

Welcome to The Village — home to a mad despot known only as The King, the mega-corporation Sell Inc, and the 10,000-channel media conglomerate Network One.

A coup has reduced The Village to rubble. Now, a nameless soldier struggles with his humanity, a priest faces a crisis of faith, a salesman falls in love with a digital mistress, and a post-punk tribe of motorized merchants fights for its very survival.

It’s going to take a while to clean up this mess. Hopefully, someone brought snacks.

“A perceptual Pandora’s Box cracks open as one gets a sense of being transported into a surreal, video game-like, sci-fi world where consumption and confusion rule…A cerebral roller coaster ride that keeps readers on their temporal toes!” -Between the Lines

“Leather to the Corinthians is a relentless and sprawling metalingual allegory reminding us to step back and examine our fast-food culture, and insta-grab reflexes.” – Z. Massad
