A highly imaginative and relatable guide for anyone who needs the reassurance that suicide is never worth it. Are you inclined to escape the crumminess of everyday life into fantasy worlds? Are you smart and imaginative in a way that isn’t really suited to your surroundings? Are you definitely misunderstood, likely angry, and almost certainly depressed? Set Sytes, hailing from the UK, would prefer you stay alive and sort things out rather than the alternative, thanks. He figures there are better opportunities for you out there and lays it all out in a way that’s compelling, funny, sharp, and useful. This zine turned book (please don’t call it a self-help guide, asks the author) is ultimately about how to be a person in the world. It can be done non-miserably, we promise.

Author Bio: Set Sytes

Author Bio: Set Sytes

Set Sytes was born in the misty, Arthurian woods of England and was raised by bears. He grew up learning how to do and be many things at the same time, including slaying monsters, rescuing damsels in distress, who turned out to be neither in distress nor, in fact, damsels; and commanding great armies, the strategy inevitably being “everybody charge at the enemy.” As the real world struck with a calamitous clang, Set was found wandering the desolate aftermath, completely uncertain about what was now expected of him. He faffed and stumbled around for an embarrassingly long time—sometimes failing quite spectacularly—and then finally turned his hand to the only thing he remembered being any good at as a kid: writing. He was relieved to break the curse of never having finished anything in his life when he finished his first novel, which was okay-ish. Set has since authored many stories of darkness and weirdness and flights of fancy, including the sci-fi–fantasy–western novel WULF, the young adult pirate fantasy India Bones and the Ship of the Dead, the thoroughly twisted dystopian thriller Moral Zero, and the fantasy-horror short story collections Faces in the Dark and Born to be Weird.
