According to underground legend, Mick Farren wrote this trilogy whilst ingesting large doses of LSD supplied by a pharmaceutical guerrilla group called The Midnight Brotherhood. Not true, but that the myth exists gives an indication of the bizarre pulp fiction cult that has grown up around these books and their author since first publication. Written practically non-stop in 1975 and 1976 - concurrent with the first germination of punk rock - the DNA Cowboys Trilogy offers fantastic adventures into the unknown and unexpected. With influences that range from Star Trek to Kung Fu and from the Marquis de Sade to Sam Peckinpah, Farren created a bizarre universe populated with pre-teen dictators, huge twin-brained domestic lizards and growing biocomputers tended by martial arts-practising monks. Farren let his imagination run wild and the results are awesome. Expect fanciful weapons, medieval jails, public hangings, Albert Speer architecture, gunfights, stiletto heels and femmes fatales in tight clothing, orgies, orgasms, and undefined monsters called Disruptors that suck up all life and logic.
