Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0987728105, Paperback)

Christopher H. Sartisohn's experimental novel Gargoyle Hotel is the first installment in his Carbon City Trilogy, an avant-garde collection fusing postmodernism, surrealism, slipstream, stream-of-consciousness and Beat literary movements. 
Sartisohn's writing has been compared to the works of William S. Burroughs, James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Thomas Pynchon, Jorge Luis Borges, Tom Waits, Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson and Kurt Vonnegut Jr. 
In Gargoyle Hotel, book one of the Carbon City Trilogy, Christopher Sartisohn unleashes his new mythology for the digital age. Floating somewhere between hallucinatory novel and surrealistic short story collection, prose poetry and radical fiction, these modular "hypershorts" codify fragmentary and disjointed mindscapes unified through Sartisohn's singular vision. 
Exploiting an implicit control of language and idiom with the fierce experimentation of Joyce, Miller, and Burroughs, Sartisohn delivers a collage of hypnotic and often shocking imagery swinging pendulously between rapt euphoria and apocalyptic dystopia. Gargoyle Hotel is kaleidoscopic, sprawling, decadent, disturbing, wildly detailed, bursting with abstract technosexuality and existential paranoia - a hypermodern masterpiece of prophetic, ethereal beauty.
Includes 39 pictorial "text art" collages by the author derived from the written text.
