Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed and dated 14 October 1988 on the title page by Jones. In the near future England "is on the edge of collapse into a police state, and Islamic movement threatens world stability, and a fascist cult called BREAKTHRU may just about tip things over the edge . A typically rich brew from Jones, with a tightly extrapolated future Europe, told utterly convincingly, with a matter-of-fact twisting of reality added for good measure." - Butler, The Pocket Essential Cyberpunk, pp. 63-4. Kairos is a reality-altering new drug that induces a strange aging effect reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's Ubik. "Corporate dystopia -- UK Ltd. Pollution." - Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. Hartwell, 200 Significant SF Books by Women, 1984-2001. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#154738).
