“My Work is Not Yet Done: Three Tales of Corporate Horror by Thomas Ligotti
A dark, and hilarious set of horror stories about office life. There are 3 short stories in this, but the first one is the best.
The first story is about a disgruntled office worker that takes out his revenge in a bloody, and satisfying manner after being fired.
“The company that employed me strived only to serve up the cheapest fare that the customer would tolerate, churn it out as fast as possible, and charge as much as they could get away with. If it were possible to do so, the company would sell what all businesses of its kind dream about selling, creating that which all of our efforts were tacitly supposed to achieve: the ultimate product – Nothing. And for this product they would command the ultimate price – Everything.”
What the heck genre is this? Corporate horror? Whatever it is, it is gruesome, and bloody satisfying.
All you swineys sitting there at the office trying to out swine your office mates to get promoted; YOU.NEED.TO.READ.THIS.
With COVID and all this crap going on in the world, we need a dark indulgence to satisfy our primal urges of revenge and murder.
