2018's Sisyphean is a standalone work of SF that hovers between a short
story collection and a novel. The stories are connected by their
setting.
No, that's a collection. Sort of by definition.

If I had ever started a band, a name I had been keeping in my back
pocket since I first read Camus was "Sisyphus."

It's since been taken.

Their guitarist, Sufjan Stevens, played on the Oscars broadcast,
during the Video Parade of the Recently Dead.

I was never into prog-rock, where the name would have been perfect.
I don't think it works for hip-hop.

Our slogan would have been:

"Sisyphus!

Gurl whfg xrrc gung ebpx ebyyva'!"

The usual term is "fix-up novel."
