A propos de cet article

Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. First edition. In the near future, on an overpopulated Earth, nearly ruined by mammoth natural disasters brought about by global warming, citizens in the "new throwaway society" are encouraged to commit suicide. Those who sign up with Rhinestone Productions as "terminals" are paid a fee to download their persona into virtual reality "splatties," snuff films in which most are killed, often by Calloway, Rhinestone's leading "splattie" star. But some "terminals" are good killers and don't care about others: they don't stick to the script, and they might snuff Calloway just for kicks and still collect a bonus payout. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy. Scarce. (#146432). N° de réf. du libraire 146432

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Calloway has followed the script thus far. But that's all there is. From here on in, it's anyone's game in accordance with the players' contracts. There are three terminals up there signed on to take their chances against Rhinestone's leading splattie star.

Calloway knows these men are the crème de la crème of their ilk. They have outlasted their colleagues during the making of The Wired Kid, and, in more than one instance, been the cause of their termination. Killers who have no thought for others, men not motivated by greed and who have no interest in the "payout" Rhinestone guarantees them should they survive their encounter with Calloway...

"Australia is not the science fiction capital of the world; in fact we are probably not even on the map. This unfortunate fact would change if we could produce more writers like Paul Collins." - Michael Hanrahan - Australian Book Review.

"Collins' stories: slick, hip, energetic punk-noir..." - Terry Dowling, The Australian.

"Edgy, strange, disconcerting, alarming, as speculative fiction is supposed to be. Collins writes the definitive well-crafted, dangerous story." - Kerry Greenwood, The Age.
