“The story-probes in Hypercapitalism are Ballardian and Phildickian—yet thoroughly Vaccarian. Warmly recommended.”

—D. Harlan Wilson, author of Dr Identity, Outré, and Nietzsche: The Unmanned Autohagiography

What do ghost hunters in the Middle East, downtrodden office clerks in love with machines, cyborg media barons and sentient, bloodthirsty insects have in common?

They all populate the astonishing short stories of Andrés Vaccari.

Collected in Hypercapitalism and Other Tales of Planetary Madness, Vaccari’s worlds are disturbing and unpredictable.

Part science fiction, part horror, part speculation, these delicate pieces of narrative engineering will make you think twice about looking in the mirror.
