"In Case This is the Last Time"
Liquid Cat Books proudly presents "In Case This is the Last Time," by Lauren Orozco. Traverse through mountains, drive along the coast, plunge into valleys where love, laughter, heartache, or grief could all meet you at the next curve in the road. Roll down the windows to feel the hostile heat of a Los Angeles heatwave and feel the temperature rise and drop as you venture deeper and higher into the heart and soul just “In Case This is the Last Time.”
Writing from both California and Montana, Lauren Orozco asks you to hop into the cab of her pick-up truck and hit those long stretches of road that make up our lives. This collection collection features unique poetry, photographs, and art. Hardcover edition in full color.
"Who am I, you ask? I am Reality, of course. I control what you see. I create the things you experience.
Your conception of me is mistaken, indubitably erroneous. I am not a static entity. I shall reveal to you my distortions; my infinitude of experiences, of thoughts and feelings; my ability to metamorphose into your darkest thoughts.
Perhaps one day you’ll take a step outside your home, ready for school or work or whatever it might be, and before you will unravel a horrific sight: human organs sprouting from trees, skin blanketing the earth, and a blood-rain pitter-pattering atop the fleshy surface
Or maybe you’ll awake one morning to find that the world has been devastated by a unique phenomenon that turns people into the food they’ve eaten. What would you do knowing that the only way to survive is to eat food that was once a living, breathing human?
Oh, I have so much to show you …"
New Science Fiction Release!
"Mason's 8th @ ZooTech"
It’s 2034, most animals are extinct. In their place is a marriage of smartphone tech and sophisticated artificial intelligence: “Buddies.” Ranging from doll-like animatrons to fully realized beasts, Buddies serve and entertain humanity. Ricky Ensler, a disaffected venture capitalist, is about to throw his son Mason an elaborate 8th birthday party and he’s fairly certain he knows just what kind of Buddy Mason will ask for: a tiger. But there's something more lurking in Ricky's mind as the festivities loom. Mason's 8th is a parable on the emotional consequences of human inaction in the face of global catastrophe. It's an exploration of what happens when comfort overpowers joy, safety overtakes struggle, and pride supersedes passion. It's a story through one man's fragmented memories of how love and technology are becoming inescapably intertwined.
