***2018 RELIT AWARD: LONG SHORTLIST***
Think the world can’t get any crazier? Think again. Set in near-future Toronto, Skeet Love tells the story of Shane, a conspiracy theorist and aspiring rapper; Nina, his girlfriend; and Brit, the couple’s lover. Wildly suspecting the threesome is under surveillance by a secretive religious cult, Shane moves the group to seek refuge with his father, a smuggler and taxidermist. And then the truth really gets weird. Craig Francis Power’s third novel is an uber-cool drug and sex-fuelled critique of the world we think we know.

[The author is] "coming on strong as a novelist. This is a story told from the edges."
“Dystopia is supposed to be disturbing. And Skeet Love doesn’t just hit the nail in the head, it skewers a corkscrew through your veins. Fierce, gritty dark and relentless, Skeet Love is the voice of future generations.”
