Absolute Unit by Nick Kolakowski (eBook and Paperback)

$3.99

 

“Action-packed, gory, and hilarious. I loved it!” – Michelle Garza

Absolute Unit is a dark carnival ride through the underside of the American Dream, where hustlers and parasites fight to survive against gun-toting furries, sarcastic drug kingpins, old ladies who are startlingly good with knives, and angry ex-girlfriends. It’s a hardboiled slice of modern American horror that asks the deepest question of all: Is the human race worth saving?

Bill is a nobody, a health inspector who’s not above taking a few dollars to overlook a restaurant’s mouse problem, and hated by nearly everyone except his long-suffering girlfriend. His nephew, Trent, isn’t much better: sexually and morally confused, he’s probably the worst teenage con artist on the East Coast. But today, these two losers are going to become the most important people in the world.

That’s because Bill and Trent harbor a sentient parasite with a sarcastic sense of humor and a ravenous appetite. As the parasite figures out how to control its new human hosts, the focus of its desires grows from delicious cheeseburgers and beer to something much darker and more dangerous.

The apocalypse might come from within us…

 

Description

 

“…takes the basic concept of a thriller, dials up the body horror, and puts a blackly comedic twist on the whole thing, the end result being uniquely entertaining and gleefully bonkers.”— Richard Martin, Horror Oasis

Nick Kolakowski’s novella, Absolute Unit, is a helluva ride. This fucked-up bizarro crime horror story is a friggin’ blast, packed chock full of comedy, outrageousness, and violence in fairly equal measure.” – Michael Hicks

Absolute Unit is a kick in the groin to all those who hold “traditional values” dear. It is the American nightmare made flesh with all the hidden seediness and sordid behavior of a rotten and decayed culture placed front and center for your reading pleasure. It’s a nasty, dirty read, and I couldn’t put it down.”Rex Hurst, author of What Hell May Come”
