Nosophobia by Gerhard Jason Geick
The young, depraved, and suicidal head out to a Chinese street eatery for wings. Once the drugs start flowing, the meat hits the grill... and the shit takes an unexpected turn for the worse. "
A fun little read
The Palahniuk vibe is strong in this, still Nosophobia remains an enjoyable moment.
Realistic and gross
A realistic and disgusting slice of life tale that answers one of the major mysteries of our times
Read the menu!!
A well told tale - I wasn't sure where things were going after the first chapter, but the subsequent ones were the meat of the story. I will think twice before eating wings again, and a clever twist makes for a story I can gladly give my recommendation to!
Fast-paced, intriguing read.
Just read Gerhard Jason Geick's Nosophobia. It's a fast-paced, intriguing story of a Canadian man who takes a job in Nanjing, China and is starting life anew after leaving his wife. He has a friend named Jay in China who takes him to a street eatery called Tin Lung Chang's. The main character likes chicken wings and unbeknownst to him his friend orders them wings of a different variety. Without revealing any spoilers, let's just say that if you're not too squeamish, are not easily revolted/offended, and are open to reading splatterpunk, then I think you'll enjoy this story. If you're like me who is curious about the origins of the Covid19 virus and how it may have started then I think you'll enjoy this story. The ending, especially, packs a good punch to the gut.
A Meaty Option
Nosophobia by Gerhard Jason Geick is a short, sharp tale which I found very relatable. Having spent a lot of time on South East Asia, I felt a degree of familiarity with the location being described, and the behaviour of those involved. There’s an uncomfortable edge to the tale, something which never feels quite right, and this gives an overwhelming sense that things are not going to end well for anyone involved. It’s dark, challenging and meaty in places, with just enough of a weird tang to make you realise you might not be happy to stomach the contents. A good, fast read which pays enough of a nod to the strange times we find ourselves in. Definitely worth a look.
