Staff Reviews


This book is a delightfully weird collection with stories about depressed AI, nuclear garden gnomes, revolutionary hackers, and Scottish moor cryptids. Through these interesting characters the author explores alienation, cultural identity, and anti-imperialism. The horror stories are truly unsettling. The last story was my favorite, it reminded me of Good Omens, but weirder and more political. 

— Dani, Books Inc. Berkeley

" Mamatas] is the People's Commissar of Awesome."
--China Mi ville, author of Embassytown

Welcome to the People's Republic of Everything--of course, you've been here for a long time already. Make yourself at home alongside a hitman who always tells the truth, no matter how reality has to twist itself to suit; electric matchstick girls who have teamed up with Friedrich Engels; a telepathic boy and his father's homemade nuclear bomb; a very bad date that births an unforgettable meme; and a dog who simply won't stop howling on social media.

The People's Republic of Everything features a decade's worth of crimes, fantasies, original fiction, and the author's preferred text of the acclaimed short novel Under My Roof.
Nick Mamatas is the author of seven novels, including Love is the Law, I Am Providence, and the forthcoming Hexen Sabbath.
