A propos de cet article

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).
