What do a crashed satellite, a string of bizarre murders and a time-warp conspiracy have in common?

Welcome to CAIRO, where the future's just a game and you're already dead.

From the author of BREAKFAST AT MIDNIGHT, "a perfect modern noir" (Richard Marshall, 3AM)

"Frightening, hilarious, insane..."

"Cairo is downright playful... filling us in on not only the tangible space, but also its sonic properties, its perfume, truly creating in three dimensions the underbelly of the underbelly." (Benjamin Woodard, Numero Cinq)

About the author:

Louis Armand (*1972) is a writer and visual artist who has lived in Prague since 1994. He has worked as an editor and publisher, and as a subtitles technician at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. He is the author of four novels, including Breakfast at Midnight, described by critic Richard Marshall as "a perfect modern noir, presenting Kafka's Prague as a bleak, monochrome singularity of darkness, despair and edgy, dry existentialist hardboil" (3:AM Magazine). He is also the author of seven collections of poetry (most recently, Letters from Ausland, Vagabond: 2011) and a number of volumes of criticism (including Solicitations: Essays on Criticism and Culture, Litteraria: 2008). He edits VLAK Magazine (www.vlakmagazine.com).
