Octavo, boards. First edition. "McDonald presents a society where nanotechnology has changed everything, including death. A third of the world's population consists of the resurrected dead, forming the majority of the workforce and living in a parallel culture alongside the living, in necrovilles, until the Freedead return from space, having been shipped there as indentured workers, to lead a rebellion." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-744. NECROVILLE, "more concentrated than his previous work, constructs an intensely complicated urban near future world -- cyberpunk imagery of the world-city is utilized with bravado throughout -- in which nanotechnology has accomplished what many -- certainly in the late twentieth century -- felt might be its first transformative change, making it possible for cellular creatures -- like us -- to become immortal. The plot spins this speculation with feverish energy." - Roz Kaveney and John Clute, SFE (online). Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket.
