J.R.H. Lawless

J.R.H. Lawless is an award-winning SF author from Atlantic Canada who blends comedy with political
themes — drawing heavily, in both cases, on his experience as a lawyer and as Secretary General of a
Parliamentary group at the French National Assembly. A member of SFWA and Codex Writers, his
short fiction has been published in many professional venues, including foreign sales. He is also a
craft article contributor to the SFWA blog, the SFWA Bulletin, and Tor.com. His debut novel, Always
Greener, is out now from Uproar Books, and the sequel, The Rude Eye of Rebellion, comes out in Fall
2020. He is represented by Marisa Corvisiero at the Corvisiero Literary Agency, and would love to

ALWAYS GREENER paperback

"“Hilarious and horrifying,” says Foreword Reviews… and really, what more could you hope for in a dark comedy?

A smash-hit reality show is offering a lifetime of luxury to the one person living the world’s worst life, and now everyone is out to prove just how bad they’ve got it.

Want in? All you’ve got to do is accept ocular implants that let the whole world see life through your eyes, twenty-four hour a day, seven days a week.

Fortunately, there’s still one person who hasn’t lost faith in all humanity. The show’s ever-smiling host is determined to wring some tiny bit of meaning out of this twisted competition and your unhappy existence.

There has to be a purpose behind all this misery.

…doesn’t there?

“An absolute joy to read. As clever as it is hilarious, as profound as it is captivating,” says James Dashner, Author of The Maze Runner.

“A cultured, witty, and very British attack on vapid reality TV values, set in an empty-souled tomorrow,” says Kirkus Reviews.

“A stinging science fiction satire that takes the downsides of modern living to their hilarious and horrifying conclusion,” says Foreword Reviews.
