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.
