Two warring guilds struggle to survive in a world where natural disaster has become commonplace. Picking up where A Clockwork Orange and On The Beach left off, Printer’s Devil searches for remnants of humanity in an extreme post-apocalyptic landscape. A fable in the spirit of Coetzee’s Waiting for the Barbarians, Printer’s Devil is a meditation on power and its abuses that echoes with disturbing parallels to the present.

“With its abuses of power, violence, and its own language, Printer’s Devil naturally draws comparisons to A Clockwork Orange.”
— Newham Recorder
“Compulsively readable but also incredibly thought-provoking, thrilling but also highly perceptive, this is everything a modern novel should be.”
