Technicolor Ultra Mall is an ultra-violent science fiction dystopic novel about the value of being human in a completely commodified world.
Technicolor Ultra Mall was shortlisted for both the Aurora and Sunburst awards. It weaves satire, ultra-violence and science fiction into a fast-paced, disjointed sprawl of a book that has been called "hellish, brilliant, stellar and profane" and a "dystopian tour de force" by reviewers.
