S.N.U.F.F. is a hard-hitting and timely satirical story about war, revolution and their relationship with the media.
Damilola Karpov is a pilot. Living in Byzantium, a huge sky city floating above the land of Urkaine, he makes his living as a drone pilot - capable of being a cameraman who records the events unfolding in Urkaine or, with the weapons aboard his drone, of making a newsworthy event happen for his employers: `Big Byz Media`.
His recordings are known as S.N.U.F.F.: Special Newsreel/Universal Feature Film.
S.N.U.F.F. is a superb post-apocalyptic novel, exploring the conflict between the nation of Urkaine, its causes and its relationship with the city `Big Byz` above. Contrasting poverty and luxury, low and high technology, barbarity and civilisation - while asking questions about the nature of war, the media, entertainment and humanity.
