Just another urban folktale of sordid bloodlust...



The one that started it all -- K. W. Jeter's first novel, that took him twelve years to get published, despite every science fiction editor in America telling him it was a great book, exactly what they should be publishing, but were too afraid to pull the trigger on. The book about which Philip K. Dick said, "... will change your notions of what's possible in science fiction forever."

Overly graphic violence, repulsive sexual practices, scathing social commentary, and a cast of thoroughly unlikable characters -- it's nearly impossible to describe. But a lot of people get killed in it, and a lot of things get blown up, a lot of which you might agree should get blown up. So it might be exactly what you're looking for, you sick bastards.
