Mart of Darkness
Biografía del autor
Phil Granchi has spent most of his life gearing up to write novels. His divergent career path has included collecting fossils in Antarctica, performing a completely improvised university lecture at comedy festivals around the world, working as a freelance graphic artist in direct marketing agencies and producing online educational games for a now-defunct dotcom startup. He's now a practicing radiologist in rural northern California. He enjoys spending time in the wilderness with his wife, Melissa Granchi, his favorite travel companion.
Descripción del libro
The CEO of AllMart, the world's largest chain of discount stores, has become unhinged and the feds send a team of ultra-deep special forces to stop him. This gritty, genre-bashing, darkly-comic dystopian/sci-fi/thriller mashup takes you on a hallucinogenic carnival ride through the company's flagship store that covers an ever-expanding swath of southern Ohio. Told through the horrified eyes of K, an office temp who has accidentally been recruited for his "special skills," Mart of Darkness pits the team against feral live-in shoppers, morality-free executives and quantum technology that threatens to collapse the global economy. K is in way over his head and can't find a way out. Join him as he crosses the Videocean, passes through the Great Gates of Giardiniera and gains a lasting appreciation for early Native American hunting practices. Chug an energy drink, don't expect cell phone service inside, and climb on for the ride!

The book is a dark parody of both Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad and the film Apocalypse Now. There are serious elements in the book about the excesses of our consumer society and the likely potential downfall of our civilization. The CEO has gone unhinged because he sees all this and has developed a twisted plan to crash the economy of the whole world so we can start over. So there's all that, but it's told in an absurdist humor way. Imagine if a big box store really did decide to build a store that stretched across the entire country and designed it so people could just spend their entire lives inside of it. It's meant to be funny and entertaining, but there's a message. The rapid advance of technology also plays a role. Eventually everyone will be totally connected and we won't be able to hide anything from each other so we might as well just get along. check out allmartstores.com : there is a logo if you want to use it Attached is the original artwork that I used for this project that was done by a good friend of mine. He's a really good designer but he didn't really have experience with book cover design. I really liked it but it didn't really give you an idea what the book was about.

Anything that doesn't give you a notion of what the book is about. It's challenging, I know, but I believe in you!

Evaluaciones del cliente
Excellent work. Easily vaulted from an initial really good concept to a completely different design that fit perfectly with the scope and concept of the book. I felt from the start he understood the really quirky elements of the project and delivered on that. Great work. Will feel honored to have this designer work on any future projects.
