A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's second novel, preceded by his well-received IN THE DRIFT (1985). "Breathtaking inventive adventure in a densely inhabited solar system of the near future, where human beings swap personas through the casual application of "wetware." Bang up to date, but solidly in the tradition of the finest American SF (from Heinlein though Bester to Varley)." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 399. "Makes extremely adroit use of the cyberpunk rhetoric of information overload, the deadpan medias-res data-buzz which characterizes the best work of writers like Gibson." - John Clute. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1112. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#4944). N° de réf. du libraire 4944

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In a world of plug-in personalities and colonized asteroids, daring fugitive Rebel Elizabeth Mudlark seeks refuge on Earth orbiting settlements, where evil, self-interest, and greed flourish in the vacuum of space. Reissue.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like most of the genre, Swanwick's cyberpunk novel takes off from '40s crime thrillers and films noir, his basis here being the amnesiac seeking her own past. Eucrasia Walsh had been a persona buma tester of plug-in personalitiesuntil one of the implants accidentally burned itself into her brain, blanking out her own identity and leaving her the sole template of the valuable new persona. Corporate giant Deutsche Nakasone and its graymarket rivals are both after her, but while on the lam she becomes involved in the struggle between Earthnow a single communal mindand the colonies of individuals scattered through the solar system. As with Swanwick's first novel, In the Drift, the story peters out toward the end, but until then it is inventive and playful, poetic and ingratiating. SF Book Club main selection.
