UBO available for pre-order now!
2 years ago
The mighty Steve Rasnic Tem returns to Solaris in 2017 with UBO, and we're both scared and exited.
The Bram Stoker Award-winning Tem had written a sci-fi horror that is as chilling as it is thought provoking, an examination of violence and humanity that will leave you thoroughly chilled. And it's available for pre-order from today! Hooray!
But what's it all about? Read on for more...
Daniel is trapped in Ubo. He has no idea how long he has been imprisoned there by the roaches.
Every resident has a similar memory of the journey: a dream of dry, chitinous wings crossing the moon, the gigantic insects dropping swiftly over the houses; the creatures, like a deck of baroquely ornamented cards, fanning themselves from one hidden world into the next.
And now each day they force Daniel to play a different figure from humanity’s violent history, from a frenzied Jack the Ripper to a stumbling and confused Stalin, to a self-proclaimed god executing survivors atop the ruins of the world. As skies burn and prisoners go mad, identities dissolve as the experiments evolve, and no one can foretell their mysterious end.
