Arthur C. Clarke Award Best Book (nominee)
The streets of London: Japanese tourists in smog-masks and Work Force youths in their tagged orange overalls. It's the first decade of the new century and business as usual for UK Ltd, despite the Islamic War that's moving ever closer. BREAKTHRU reps in their preposterous angel fancy-dress stalk the dissidents, making many converts to their own brand of extremism.

Slash Hack Burn: Break down the old, make room for the new age. KAIROS is fear. KAIROS is chaos. KAIROS is opportunity: KAIROS is the ruler of change. It will break down all the walls, even that sacred and infinitely necessary barrier between Mind and the World. KAIROS has the power, and BREAKTHRU have the KAIROS. A reckless act of surreal terrorism is about to be set in motion, and its about to go badly wrong...

First published in 1988, shortlisted for the Arthur C Clarke award: re-mastered for Kindle and available as an epub for the first time, Gwyneth Jones's Kairos now seems eerily prescient.
