Louis has always been socially inept. Countless are the times when his mother has begged him to find a female mate. When he reaches his thirties, in a rare act of bravery, Louis finally agrees to settle down with a woman. There's only one catch, though: She's a robot.

Allison has fiery red hair and oceanic blue eyes. Her hobbies include clubbing, dancing, and having rough sex. She is like pornography come to life: a sublime-looking woman who will do anything her man tells her to. Or at least that's what her User's Manual promises...

In time, Allison begins to rebel. She tells Louis she does not love him. She runs screaming into traffic. Eats half a bar of soap. Lifts her shirt up at inappropriate moments. Gets into bed with the old geezer down the hall. Louis's life, once a model of order and predictability, has turned into a hideous nightmare.

When Louis complains to Allison's manufacturers, they give him two options: (1) He can trade her in for another unit, or (2) he can drop her off for a mind transplant. When Louis selects the latter option, things really start spinning out of control...

Days of Allison is part satire, part love story, and part surreal fantasy. It spoofs our contemporary culture of chat-room love affairs and excess porn consumption via a vision of a world wherein extreme erotic fantasies are just a simple investment away. In the meantime, though, DOA depicts true love - for in time, Louis comes to love Allison for who she is, rather than what she will do for him.


DAYS OF ALLISON finds a comfortable spot among other works of sci-fi and suspense, as well as action-adventure and romance, but it is notably a work of feminist science fiction, a romantic and satirical novel of dark humor that casts a glaring eye upon robots existing in a future dystopia, the result of scientific tinkering and something resembling genetic engineering. Combining sci-fi, horror, romance, and absurdist humor against a backdrop of urban city life, DAYS OF ALLISON is ultimately a trip into the human psyche, and perhaps the soul that dwells not far beyond it.


Editorial Reviews

"Shapiro is the next Philip K. Dick." --Bram Stoker Award-winning author Kealan Patrick Burke

"A fun, fast read with a concluding twist that makes you want to re-read it immediately... I'll be looking for more from Shapiro in the future, because I won't know where he's taking me next." --Bart Brunscheen, Bookgasm

"Virtuoso rendition of a 'Man' trapped inside his own head... it's got the universality to wake up the narcotized and automated masses, and make them realize that there is, indeed, more." --Steven J. Hansen
