Even after the world and humanity itself have been rendered nearly unrecognizable by genetic engineering, a day in the office can feel...Sisyphean.

The company stands atop a tiny deck supported by huge iron columns a hundred meters high. The boss there is its president-a large creature of unstable, shifting form once called "human." The world of his dedicated worker contains only the deck and the sea of mud surrounding it, and and the worker's daily routine is anything but peaceful. A mosaic novel of extreme science and high weirdness, Sisyphean will change the way you see existence itself.

Japan's own version of the "New Weird," a popular cult subgenre of SF/fantasy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dempow Torishima's Sisyphean is stunning. A game-changer. Possibly the first truly visionary novel of this decade for SF."-Jeff VanderMeer, best-selling author of Annihilation.
"Torishima's knotty, dense, hilarious, scary masterpiece is a book whose prose can be savored endlessly, and whose Kakaesque biopunk conceits prove that no strangeness which the universe can confer upon humanity will destroy the essential drives, loves and ambitions of the species." * Locus Online *
