In Suspect Device, Stewart Home has gathered together a collection of fiction from a new generation of British writers who are blurring the boundaries between high-brow literature and pulp fiction. Hard-edged writers who are not afraid to cross the line violate every middle-brow notion of good taste and use sexual violence and violent sex to hack their way to a world without any social norms. A celebration of the physical - something usually rejected as non-literary, as a 'suspect device' - runs through this writing; lust, murder, magic and chaos are the predominant themes. Toxic, blunt, shocking and highly readable, Suspect Device includes writing by John King, Stewart Home, Berthold Bluel, Tommy Udo, Steven Wells, amongst others.

Review:

?A hip apocalypse culture companion, with stories ranging from the downright hilarious to the totally insane? Bizarre ?It is refreshing to find a collection of ?new writing? as original and exciting as Suspect Device... as the title suggests, Home is reconfiguring books as explosive elements - pages so stuffed with ideas they might go off in your hands? Independent ?Its fantastic reprocessing of post-80s dole culture recalls Acid House-period Irvine Welsh. Home calls it ?proletarian postmodernism?. Others call it avant pulp? i-D
