Description

New York Times bestselling author David Wong's Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick is the latest—and greatestsci-fi thriler in the Zoey Ashe Series.

Nightmarish villains with superhuman enhancements. An all-seeing social network that tracks your every move. Mysterious, smooth-talking power players who lurk behind the scenes. A young woman suddenly in charge of the most decadent city in the world. And her very smelly cat.

Zoey Ashe is like a fish so far out of water that it has achieved orbit. She finds herself struggling to establish rule over a sprawling empire while Tabula Ra$a's rogue's gallery of larger-than-life crime bosses and corrupt plutocrats smell weakness. Tensions brew across the city.

A steamer trunk-sized box arrives at Zoey's door, and she and her bodyguard Wu are shocked to find that it contains a disemboweled corpse, and even more shocked when that corpse, controlled by an unknown party, rises from the box and goes on a rampage through the house. After being subdued, it speaks in an electronic voice, accusing Zoey of being its murderer. Soon, it makes the same claim to the public at large, along with the promise of a cash reward for proof that Zoey and the Suits are behind the crime.

Now Zoey is having doubts of her own: Is she 100% sure that someone on her team didn't do this? She also doesn't even have a complete list of what businesses she owns, or what exact laws her organization is still breaking. So what does she really know?

Praise For Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick: A Novel (Zoey Ashe #2)

Praise for FUTURISTIC VIOLENCE AND FANCY SUITS:

"With verve and velocity, the story moves...one cinematic set piece after another, strung together with twisty fun and wit." —The New York Times Book Review

"Like Jonathan Swift for the internet age, Wong’s novel offers an engrossing journey and razor-sharp wit inside of an uncanny prediction of an American future. His newest is only more proof that he will be remembered as one of today’s great satirists." —Nerdist

"All right, grab some popcorn and strap in. We're in for another profane and funny roller-coaster ride from Wong."
Kirkus Reviews

"Wong unabashedly trolls everyone and lampoons everything in this beautifully outrageous science fiction adventure...Biting humor and blatant digs at modern society overlay a subtly brilliant and thoughtful plot focused on one young woman’s growth and survival against all odds." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A sofa clutching read from beginning to end, and a great look at the constantly growing world of social networking." —Starbust, 9 out of 10 stars
