‘Sentimentalisme Calon Mayat’ contains 8 short stories written by Sony Karsono between 1995-2002 with various forms of updates. The stories in this book tend to be dark and cynical, with optimism emerging from explorative genres (from realism, absurdity to sci-fi).

Sentimentalime Calon Mayat also provides a flexible storytelling experience, showing how terror works within the text and is expressed throughout the stories. In this collection, we will encounter the ghosts of the New Order that are seen but unseen and vice versa. The eight stories in this book are concluded by an essay by Afrizal Malna that opens our inner eyes to the New Order, which is actually just a handsbreadth away, as well as new possibilities for the speculative stories crafted by Sony.
