About this product
- DescriptionSet in the unique world first featured in the award-winning <b>Light, </b> here is a story of love, murder, and intergalactic ir on the razor s edge of the imagination, as envisioned by the incomparable M. John Harrison. Not far from Moneytown, in a neighborhood of underground clubs, body-modification chop shops, adolescent contract killers, and sexy streetwalking Monas, you ll find the Saudade Event Site: a zone of strange geography, twisted physics, and frightening psychic onslaughts. Vic Serotonin is an illegal travel agent into and out of Saudade. His latest client is a woman as unpredictable as the site itself and maybe as dangerous. She wants a tour inside Saudade just as a troubling new class of biological artifacts have started leaving living algorithms that are transforming the real world in unsettling ways. Pursued by a detective intent on collaring him for his illegal tours, and hunted by a gangster convinced that the travel agent has infected him with a rogue artifact, Vic must make one final trip as the universe around him rapidly veers toward viral chaos.
