Meet Dave. He decides that unfollowing someone just isn't enough. He's determined to make the internet a nicer place, and he won't stop at murder in order to achieve it. When he kills his best friend's girlfriend, he isn't planning on changing the world. She was just really annoying on Facebook.
But someone saw, and made him an offer. Someone who knows what he’s capable of, and wants to use him to take control of the darkness at the heart of the internet. And now the bodies – the comment trolls, the sexual predators, the obnoxious pop stars – are starting to mount up...
In Haterz Goss fantastically and ruthlessly holds up a mirror to society in this blackly comic Orwellian fantasy for the 21st Century, which tackles everything we understand about our relationship with the internet; Haterz is in equal parts hilarious and terrifying, and guaranteed to make you look again at the world, both on and offline.
