Fearkiller is about the workforce of 2000–2010. Chris Maley was a cubicle slave for the first half of the decade, got fired, and was self-employed for the second half. (Attempts at self-employment led to the firing.) The second half was rolling along nicely until he got hammered by The Great Recession. Instead of searching for full-time employment, he destroyed his credit rating and worked $9/hr part-time jobs to make ends meet because talks with employed people centered around one thing: living in fear. On a positive note, those talks inspired a novel.
