Synopsis : Book one of John Shirley's pre-holocaust series, A Song Called Youth.
The Russians didn't use the big nukes.
The ongoing Third World War leaves parts of Europe in ruins. Into the chaos steps the Second Alliance, a multinational eager to impose its own kind of New World Order.
In the United States ... in FirStep, the vast space colony ... and on the artificial island Freezone -- the SA shoulders its way to power, spinning a dark web of media manipulation, propaganda, and infiltration.
Only the New Resistance recognizes the SA for what it really is: a racist theocracy hiding a cult of eugenics.
Enter Rick Rickenharp, a former rock'n'roll cult hero: a rock classicist -- out of place in Europe's underground club scene, populated by "wiredancers" and "minimonos" ... but destined to play a Song Called Youth that will shake the world.
Note de l'éditeur: Originally published in 1985, Eclipse reveals the remarkably current and prophetic vision of John Shirley. Mixing politics, pop culture, passion, paranoia, powerful imagery and vivid characters, Eclipse possesses a visceral intensity as well as being a thought-provoking assault on the intellect. John Shirley is the recipient of the World Horror Writers Award as well as the Bram Stoker Award.
