About this product
- DescriptionMixing outlaw humour, sci-fi adventure and cutting social criticism, original 'Dread Lord' of Cyberpunk, John Shirley, draws upon his arsenal of narrative and commentary in New Taboos. The title piece is Shirley's prescription for a radical re-visioning of America. A new short story, 'State of Imprisonment', is a horrifying and hilarious look at the privatization of the prison industry. The 1% get their comeuppance in 'Where the Market's Hottest.' And Shirley's TED address (delivered in Brussels, 2011) presents a proudly contrarian view of the next forty years.
