Edition : 1st Edition

Description :

Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. The inhabitants of a broken down twenty-first century Los Angeles run by gangsters are threatened by a deadly new disease, apparently a biological weapon which has somehow got loose. "Not wholly assimilated influences including cyberpunk as a whole and J. G. Ballard in particular give an element of pastiche to his early work, including his first novel, METROPHAGE (1988); but the latter transcends it in a vigorous and inventive tale of a mean-streetwise drug pusher's problems in a near-future Los Angeles that is being eaten alive by urban decay, police corruption and corporate cynicism. It reads like a supercharged arcade game that appalls even its creator ." - Peter Nicholls and John Clute, SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-222. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#152907). N° de réf. du libraire 152907

Quatrième de couverture:

The cult-classic dystopian cyberpunk tale from New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey, after twenty years, now back in print in a special signed, collectible edition

Welcome to our future: L.A. in the late twenty-first century?a segregated city of haves and have-nots, where morality is dead and technology rules. Here, a small wealthy group secludes themselves in gilded cages. Beyond their high-security compounds, far from their pretty comforts, lies a lawless wasteland where the angry masses battle hunger, rampant disease, and their own despair in order to survive.

Jonny was born into this Hobbesian paradise. A streetwise hustler who deals drugs on the black market?narcotics that heal the body and cool the mind?he looks out for nobody but himself. Until a terrifying plague sweeps through L.A., wreaking death and panic, and no one, not even a clever operator like Jonny, is safe.
