A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. The first half of the third book of the Rifters trilogy, a sequel to STARFISH (1999) and MAELSTROM (2001). B-MAX and SEPPUKU "focus with quite extraordinary grimness on the savage interactions amongst the damaged cadre of rifters, who may be at the first stages of evolving into posthuman beings; and upon Homo sapiens in the grip of a terminal crisis that may bring on the end of the world." - John Clute, SFE (online). A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#146773). N° de réf. du libraire 146773

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Starfish lit the fuse. Maelstrom was the explosion. But five years into the aftermath, things aren't quite so simple as they once seemed...

Lenie Clarke-rifter, avenger, amphibious deep-sea cyborg-has destroyed the world. Once exploited for her psychological addiction to dangerous environments, she emerged in the wake of a nuclear blast to serve up vendetta from the ocean floor. The horror she unleashed-an ancient, apocalyptic microbe called ßehemoth- has been free in the world for half a decade now, devouring the biosphere from the bottom up. North America lies in ruins beneath the thumb of an omnipotent psychopath. Digital monsters have taken Clarke's name, wreaking havoc throughout the decimated remnants of something that was once called Internet. Governments have fallen across the globe; warlords and suicide cults rise from the ashes, pledging fealty to the Meltdown Madonna. All because five years ago, Lenie Clarke had a score to settle.

But she has learned something in the meantime: she destroyed the world for a fallacy.

Now, cowering at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, rifters and the technoindustrial "corpses" who created them hide from a world in its death throes. But they cannot hide forever: something is tracking them, down amongst the lightless cliffs and trenches of the Midatlantic Ridge. The consequences of past acts reach inexorably towards the very bottom of the world, and Lenie Clarke must finally confront the mess she made.

Redemption doesn't come easy with the blood of a world on your hands. But even after five years in purgatory, Lenie Clarke is still Lenie Clarke. There will be consequences for anyone who gets in her way-and worse ones, perhaps, if she succeeds. . . .

ßehemoth: ß- Max is the first of two volumes. The story will conclude in ßehemoth: Seppuku.
