Aging punks recapture the greatest show of their youth through barbaric rituals. The lone survivor of a hellish Interstate pile-up follows an otherworldly sound to its source. A father desperate to cure his daughter’s condition uncovers a multinational corporation’s unspeakable plan for solving world hunger. In these eleven stories, Cody Goodfellow explores the bizarre and the deeply human, using the kaleidoscopic language only he is capable of.

Praise for CODY GOODFELLOW

“Brutal, breakneck, and brilliant—Strategies Against Nature grabs you by the throat and drags you under. Don’t even try to resist.”
—Daniel H. Wilson, author of ROBOPOCALYPSE

“The razor acuity of his vision, the deep humanity of his concerns, place Goodfellow in the lineage of Hunter S. Thompson and Michael Shea. For his characters, the world is always ending, sometimes in gaudy, grandiose, over-the-top scenarios that evoke all the best excesses of pop fiction, and sometimes in muted, humble, quieter situations that call to mind the oblique inferences of the avant-garde. There are monsters a-plenty in these pages, but the things Goodfellow's stories employ evoke the word's origin in that which is shown.”
—John Langan, author of THE WIDE, CARNIVOROUS SKY AND OTHER MONSTROUS GEOGRAPHIES

“One can certainly see influences of Lovecraft, the New Wave of SF writers of the sixties, the Cyberpunks and Splatterpunks – and even surrealists like Kafka and Borges. Don’t get me wrong though, Cody Goodfellow is one of a kind. Highly Recommended!”
—DARK DISCOVERIES

“‘80s vintage horror with a contemporary edge. An exemplary wordsmith, his prose sticks a needle in your brain and gives it a twist. This stuff is Lovecraft on acid.”
—Laird Barron, author of THE IMAGO SEQUENCE & OTHER STORIES

“Perfect Union is Cronenberg’s The Fly on a grand scale: human/ insect gene-spliced body horror, where the human hive politics are as shocking as the gore. This book would make Marx and Thoreau’s heads explode. In other words, astounding.”
—John Skipp, NY Times Bestselling author of THE LIGHT AT THE END and THE BRIDGE

“Cody Goodfellow has written the two best cross-genre- anthropological-Lovecraftian-military-thriller-stew books ever with Radiant Dawn and Ravenous Dusk. He’s like the Ellroy of speculative fiction . . .”
—Jeremy Robert Johnson, author of SKULLCRACK CITY, WE LIVE INSIDE YOU, and ANGEL DUST APOCALYPSE

"One of the best writers of weird/cosmic horror around."
—THE MONITOR
