BookThug invites you to celebrate the launch of RATS NEST, the debut novel by Mat Laporte.

RATS NEST introduces readers to a protoplasmic, fantastical underworld, as navigated by a self-reproducing 3D Printed Kid made especially for this purpose. As the Kid descends the layers of a seemingly never-ending pit, its nightmares and hallucinations unfold in twelve chilling chapters of unreality that will make readers think twice about what it means to be a human (or humanoid) on the planet we call home.

To celebrate the book's release, Mat asked some of his favourite writer/artist/friends to make and perform remixes of RATS NEST. The remixers are ERIC SCHMALTZ, NATALIE MARIE HELBERG and LINDSAY CAHILL. They will perform their remixes and then Mat will read briefly from the book.
