    Prosperous Hagia's vaults brimmed with gold. Her warehouses bulged with the goods of the southern seas. She had the spider-god to thank for her prosperity. But beneath Hagia's ancient bargain with the A'Rak lay the direst danger. That mercenary kingdom had mortgaged its soul in its pact with the giant arachnoid. When the note fell due, death of the most hideous kind awaited the multitudes of that affluent and bustling nation.

    Nifft the Lean and his companion-in-arms, Barnar Hammer-Hand, were often lucky. En route to working Costard's sap mine - very dangerous and sometimes nauseating work far below ground - they were shipwrecked. But this proved fortuitous when they met Bunt, who had been seeking just such as they. If they would work the sap mine, but also bring back 20 gills of fluid, he would make them exceedingly wealthy. So it was settled. Of course, the best laid plans sometimes do go a little astray.

    The Extra is set in a future California where members of a desperate populace sign contracts to participate in reality death films, knowing that less than 20% of them will survive. It’s a view of the future—and Hollywood—as delightfully cynical as Kurt Vonnegut with sympathetic characters, Hollywood executive sleazeballs and much more.

    Less than a hundred years in the future, pollution, economic disaster, and the rapacious greed of the corporate oligarchy have brought America to its knees and created dystopian urban nightmares, of which Los Angeles may be the worst. Curtis, Japh, and Jool are film extras, who - with the help of a couple of very gutsy women - survived being anonymous players in a "live-action" film in which death on-screen meant death in real life. Surviving the shoot made them rich enough to escape the post-apocalyptic hell that LA has become.

    High school senior Aiden O'Connor's life is in turmoil. He's bored with school, his growing skill at boxing won't pay the rent when his drunken father leaves, and someone is keeping his mom from finding work in any pub in South Boston. Lured by childhood friend Tommy's promise of easy money, Aiden reluctantly gets mixed up with the Irish mob. Aiden's strong sense of honor makes him a bit too good at his job with the King of the Street, who wants to keep Aiden involved for reasons of his own. Conflicted about nearly everything, Aiden has to decode where his loyalties lie - and when he has had enough.
