Cover reveal - Corpus Chrome Inc, by S. Craig Zahler

Who should be given a second chance at life? 
Decades in the future Corpus Chrome, Inc. develops a robotic body,  dubbed a “mannequin,” that can revive, sustain and interface with a  cryonically-preserved human brain. Like all new technology, it is  copyrighted.
Hidden behind lawyers and a chrome facade, the inscrutable  organization resurrects a variety of notable minds, pulling the deceased  back from oblivion into a world of animated sculpture, foam rubber  cars, dissolving waste and strange terrorism. Nobody knows how Corpus  Chrome, Inc. determines which individuals should be given a second life,  yet myriad people are affected. Among them are Lisanne Breutschen, the  composer who invented sequentialism with her twin sister, and Champ  Sappline, a garbage man who is entangled in a war between the third,  fourth and fifth floors of a New York City apartment building.
In the Spring of 2058, Corpus Chrome, Inc. announces that they will  revive Derek W.R. Dulande—a serial rapist and murderer who was executed  thirty years ago for his crimes. The public is horrified by the  decision, and before long, the company’s right to control the lone  revolving door between life and death will be violently challenged….

What They’re Saying About S. Craig Zahler
“Zahler’s a fabulous story teller whose style catapults his reader  into the turn of the century West with a ferocious sense of  authenticity.”
—Kurt Russell, star of Tombstone, Escape from New York, Dark Blue, and Death Proof  

“If you’re looking for something similar to what you’ve read before, this ain’t it. If you want something comforting and predictable, this  damn sure ain’t it.  But if you want something with storytelling guts  and a weird point of view, an unforgettable voice, then you want what I want, and that is this.”
—Joe R. Lansdale author of Edge of Dark Water
