Derek is LitenVarld's most loyal employee. He lives and breathes the job, from the moment he wakes up in a converted shipping container at the edge of the parking lot to the second he clocks out of work 18 hours later. But after taking his first ever sick day, his manager calls that loyalty into question.
An excellent employee like Derek, an employee made to work at LitenVarld, shouldn't need time off. To test his commitment to the job, Derek is assigned to a special inventory shift, hunting through the store to find defective products.
Toy chests with pincers and eye stalks, ambulatory sleeper sofas, killer mutant toilets, that kind of thing. Helping him is the inventory team - four strangers who look and sound almost exactly like him.
Are five Dereks better than one?
"Cipri continues to mix queer characters and anti-capitalist themes with energetic, bouncy prose. Highly recommended for readers looking for sf with queer protagonists, or who are interested in a short but exciting trip through some dimension-defying showrooms."
Booklist, starred review
Praise for Finna
"Finna is a magical anti-capitalist adventure that crosses dimensions, abolishes gender binaries, and liberates retail workers. Reading it is a goddamn delight."
"Funny as hell, scary as f*ck, and so full of heart I didn't want it to end. A magnificent must-read."
Sam J Miller
"Finna is the most grounded tale of multi-dimensional heartache I could imagine; it is completely and entirely lovely."
"Finna is a book of fantastical impossibilities and biting commentary on the perils of capitalism. But it's also a heartfelt exploration of two people moving apart, only to be forced together in the most nightmarish of circumstances."
"Cipri hits all the right notes in this fantasy novella packed with action and emotion. Part horror, part humour, and all heart, the story uniquely showcases two queer protagonists dealing with their own emotional separation while also being forced to work together."
