Summary

Mixing outlaw humor, SF adventure, and cutting social criticism, Shirley draws upon his entire arsenal of narrative and commentary. The title essay, "New Taboos" is his prescription for a radical re-visioning of America. A new short story, "State of Imprisonment," is a horrifying and hilarious look at the privatization of the prison industry. The 1% get their comeuppance in "Where the Market's Hottest." His TEDx address (delivered in Brussels, 2011) presents his proudly contrarian view of the next forty years. Also featured is our Outspoken Interview showcasing the author's transgressive sensibility, deep humanity, and mordant wit.
