Review: Purge Status

Purge Status
Purge Status by Shawn Mann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A bleak, unsettling short story whose focus on corporate horror and the slow degeneration of the human psyche wears its Ligottian influence on its sleeve. There are echoes of Jeff VanderMeer in here too, with the story’s beautiful, liminal imagery. Mann builds the confusion and unease with masterful pacing, using architecture to unsettle the reader as much as the protagonist. Another excellent piece of work from the consistently weird and reliable Dynatox Ministries.
