This surreal journey of self-discovery and transformation at once questions the nature of our world, and redefines it in the context of 21st century pop culture and technology. It takes a writer of John Shirley’s talent and audacity to bring together elements as disparate as Shakespeare, Nietzsche, on-line role playing games, soap operas, and classic mythology – binding them together, creating a heady mélange on, above, and below the streets of Manhattan.
Into a Southern California rife with the machinations of Hollywood, the lure of drugs, and the slick sheen of sex, comes a nameless, ancient evil, a destroyer that completely ravages its victims, body and soul, leaving behind only wet bones. Blending supernatural horror worthy of Lovecraft with a razor-sharp, outlaw street savvy, Shirley presents a visceral, terrifying tale sure to sear the psyche of unwary readers.
