David Jeter, the notorious serial killer with a sixth sense, holds court inside London's Wormwood Scrubs Prison.  Heís the focus of the "North Wing Project."  Under the influence of a hallucinogen, Jeter can create an alternate world known as "The Rift" containing the souls of his victims.  Pardons are on offer to inmates whoíll enter The Rift.  Michael Keeler has nothing to lose and little to live for.  Heís sent into The Rift to learn the identity of Jeterís last victim.  Itís a mission where the guilty can be redeemed, but at a price.

"In this fast-paced cybernoir tale, Simon Wood invites us to quite literally step inside the circus tent of a mad criminal mind...before zipping it right up behind us for good. And that's fine, because you'll be enthralled by what Wood has in store for you in The Scrubs. Merging the best of hardboiled prison stories with the thrills of today's technoterror, The Scrubs is an inventive and suspenseful read -- suprising at every turn -- and it will surely tip you off your rocker as you plunge deeper and deeper into the wormy coils of its madhouse prison.  This is, simply put, an incredible novella!"
-- Michael Arnzen, author of The Bitchfight and Play Dead

"The Scrubs is one merciless piece of work, and in both the setting of the Wormwood Scrubs prison and its colorful, even tragic, inmates, Simon Janus has created a terse, tense, and powerful novella that closes in on the reader like the worst case of claustrophobia you've ever had.  An excellent achievement, and a real milestone in Janus' career."

-- International Horror Guild and Bram Stoker Award-winner Gary A. Braunbeck, author of Mr. Hands, Destinations Unknown, and Coffin County
