The Complex

The Complex
by Ian Randall Wilson

Winner of the 2014 Colony Collapse Novella Prize, this is dark but often humorous tale of life in the workplace after a major earthquake in Los Angeles. Robert Boswell said, “In Ian Wilson's THE COMPLEX, unceasing aftershocks rattle buildings in Los Angeles, and the tremors extend to surprising places: connections among people come unglued, reason jangles, the tenuous logic that holds civilization together clatters and squeals. This dark and absurdly funny homage to Kafka's The Castle made me laugh out loud a dozen times.”
