cannon fodder is a collection of eight short stories that hold nothing back. They're raw and poignant but sprinkled here and there with tender moments that give you an opportunity to catch your breath. Hardmen from a North London gang, manipulative devils in Los Angeles, and the new middleweight boxing champion of the world cross paths in these jagged tales of the forlorn and forsaken. They are cannon fodder, and the path they follow is a cruel and unforgiving one. Not that anyone really cares one way or the other. If you're lucky, life's a banquet. If you're not, you're going hungry. Then again, you can only squeeze so many people around a table.
