Harsh Lung - Collected Stories Book
Harsh Lung - Collected Stories by Luke Drozd
178x110mm paperback with screen printed dust-jacket
'The Minotaur hated working at the fast food restaurant, tormented as he was by his inability to solve the maze on the back of the children’s menu.' - Minotaur, from Harsh Lung
Harsh Lung brings together 69 short stories written by me over the past 5 - 6 year period. The tiny tales are tinted with sadness and humour, touching on universal human concerns such as love, death, betrayal, cake, skeletons, dead foxes, space, bestiality, Greek mythological man-beasts treading water on zero-hours contracts in the convenience food sector, and much more.
Most of the stories are previously unpublished but some feature in different forms within my two self-published books (Dark Days and Threnodies) as well as via tracks by Reet Maff'l, and on the closing track of David Thomas Broughton's triple album from 2016, 'Crippling Lack'.
