the-dirt-chronicles.jpgArsenal Pulp Press is about to release my newest book - a collection of linked short stories called The Dirt Chronicles. Yes Sir, this is an hommage to queer punk radicals and rebels of all persuasions!

Here’s what Zoe Whittall has to say about it in Fashion Magazine (Sept 2011):

“Known for her visceral, no-holds-barred young-adult and speculative fiction, Dunnion’s first literary fiction book for adults is just as fierce and fascinating. These fast-moving linked stories take us deep into the lives of urban outlaws and loveable misfits. A meek office worker abandons his sedate life for an obsession with an enigmatic bike courier; a man wakes up in Toronto’s notorious Don Jail, charged with the murder of his best friend; teen runaways vow revenge; and everybody tries to avoid the King, a homicidal cop bent on destroying the underclasses Dunnion portrays so brilliantly.”
