Osceola Godspeed

By Mike Taylor

24 Pages, 5" x 6.5", Paperbck

Edition of 250

 

In this short story, Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales is the point of departure for re-imagining a late-capitalist trail of tears. Florida's mythical Seminole Chief (and sports mascot), Osceola, is a metonym for the Get Rich And Die Trying Calvinism baked into the American ethos; but sure as the real-life Osceola, born William Powell Jr., was hardly an "Indian" at all, the land grab reality show at the centre of Osceola Godspeed proves to be more than the desperate contestants signed up for.
