 Uproar Books has set a February 18, 2020, release date for the science-fiction satire Always Greener by J.R.H. Lawless.

a

To celebrate, the publisher unveiled the cover to fans via ScifiandScary.com and announced Advance Review Copies are now available in paperback or ebook to reviewers and media outlets.

Centered on a reality show competition for the world’s worst life, Always Greener explores a world where people gladly hand over all control of their own lives in exchange for the latest technological gadgets and a few minutes of fame.

a

“Timely is an understatement,” said Rick Lewis, publisher at Uproar Books. “Mixing the absurd wit of Douglas Adams with the piercing insight of ‘Black Mirror,’ you can’t help but laugh and wince at the same time.”

On the cover, a disembodied eye attached by the optic nerve directly into a computer monitor in order to watch itself endlessly, capturing the novel’s themes of absurdity, self-obsession, dehumanization, and technology run amok.

a

The cover also features a quote from The Maze Runner author James Dashner, who calls the novel: “An absolute joy to read. As clever as it is hilarious, as profound as it is captivating.”

Back cover blurb:

a

LIFE’S BIGGEST VICTIM,

PLEASE STEP UP AND CLAIM YOUR PRIZE!

a

A smash-hit reality show is offering a lifetime of luxury to the one person living the world’s worst life, and now everyone is out to prove just how bad they’ve got it.

a

Want in? All you’ve got to do is accept ocular implants that let the whole world see life through your eyes, twenty-four hour a day, seven days a week.

a

Fortunately, there’s still one person who hasn’t lost faith in all humanity. The show’s ever-smiling host is determined to wring some tiny bit of meaning out of this twisted competition

a

and your unhappy existence.

a

There has to be a purpose behind all this misery.

a

…doesn’t there?
