LitenVerse (Volume 1)


[FR] Finna, de Nino Cipri, est une histoire exubérante et touchante qui mêle toutes les horreurs que le multivers a à offrir à l’horreur quotidienne d’un travail mal payé. Elle explore les relations homosexuelles et les sentiments homosexuels, le capitalisme et la responsabilité, le travail et l’amour, le tout avec un sens de l’humour bondissant et un engagement envers l’étrange.


[EN] Nino Cipri’s Finna is a rambunctious, touching story that blends all the horrors the multiverse has to offer with the everyday awfulness of low-wage work. It explores queer relationships and queer feelings, capitalism and accountability, labor and love, all with a bouncing sense of humor and a commitment to the strange.

Lorsqu’une cliente âgée d’un magasin suédois de meubles à grande surface – mais pas celui-là – traverse un portail pour se rendre dans une autre dimension, c’est à deux employés au salaire minimum de la suivre à travers le multivers et de protéger les résultats de leur entreprise. Le cape et l’épée multidimensionnels seraient assez difficiles, mais ces deux malheureux ont rompu il y a une semaine.

Pour retrouver la mamie disparue, Ava et Jules vont braver des meubles carnivores, des essaims de porte-parole de meubles identiques et le profond ressentiment qui couve entre elles. L’amitié peut-elle fleurir sur les cendres de leur relation ? Dans les dimensions infinies, tout est possible.


When an elderly customer at a Swedish big box furniture store—but not that one—slips through a portal to another dimension, it’s up to two minimum-wage employees to track her across the multiverse and protect their company’s bottom line. Multi-dimensional swashbuckling would be hard enough, but those two unfortunate souls broke up a week ago.

To find the missing granny, Ava and Jules will brave carnivorous furniture, swarms of identical furniture spokespeople, and the deep resentment simmering between them. Can friendship blossom from the ashes of their relationship? In infinite dimensions, all things are possible.

Finna is a magical anti-capitalist adventure that crosses dimensions, abolishes gender binaries, and liberates retail workers. Reading it is a goddamn delight.” —Annalee Newitz

“Funny as hell, scary as f*ck, and so full of heart I didn’t want it to end. A magnificent must-read.” —Sam J Miller

Finna is the most grounded tale of multi-dimensional heartache I could imagine; it is completely and entirely lovely.” —Sarah Gailey

Finna is a book of fantastical impossibilities and biting commentary on the perils of capitalism. But it’s also a heartfelt exploration of two people moving apart, only to be forced together in the most nightmarish of circumstances.” —Mark Oshiro

“Cipri hits all the right notes in this fantasy novella packed with action and emotion. Part horror, part humor, and all heart, the story uniquely showcases two queer protagonists dealing with their own emotional separation while also being forced to work together.” —Library Journal starred review

“The mixture of corporate drudgery and dimension-hopping adventure will hold the reader’s attention as well as Ava and Jules’ post-break-up foibles do. Recommended for those interested in sf that features queer relationships, minimum-wage labor, and many worlds theory.” —Booklist

“A weird novella examining capitalism, class and consumerism, all wrapped up in a scary, funny, and queer AF fantasy that you’ll swallow whole. It’s super yummy with a potent aftertaste that will (gratefully) stay with you for long after you’ve put it down.” —Ms. Magazine

“A fun, unexpected romp that, in between digs at big box stores and capitalism more generally, delves into questions of family, anxiety, and post-breakup friendship.” —Malka Older

“A rip-roaring high-concept adventure story with a steely spine of righteous fury and a heart overflowing with love.” —Lara Elena Donnelly

“If you’ve ever felt lost in the guts of a labyrinthine Swedish furniture store and only prayed to emerge intact, Finna is a must-read. Nino Cipri’s cracking debut mixes swashbuckling ship captains, carnivorous alien plants and relationship angst with the soul-deadening reality of a retail job in the hellscape of late capitalism.” —JY Yang

“Cipri has written the blue-collar fantasy I’ve wanted to read for decades, minimum wage and maximum weird.” —Meg Elison

“Snappy, hilarious, poignant and fun, Finna is a phenomenally queer adventure into minimum wage retail hell, multiple realities, and interpersonal relationships. Cipri has crafted a beautiful story with humor, weirdness, and empathy.” —Merc Finn Wolfmoor
