Reviews

`Surreal, compulsive... probably the most original and unsettling read you're likely to have this year.' The Big Issue----`The scenery is taken straight from a low-budget Blade Runner... brilliantly welds together archaic language with computer-speak to create a funny, caustic collection.' The Times ---- `It insists on being read, at once, and probably out loud.' Iain Sinclair ----`Reads as if written by one of Anthony Burgess's more gifted Clockwork Orange droogs.' The Guardian----`The best yet from the pulpsters!' Jeff Noon----`Though his theme is the state of the nation, Etchells has little time for the new realism of the last few years, placing himself instead in the tradition of Ballard and Moorcock. Hacking up our comforters-TV cartoons, mythologies, children's toys and board games-he deftly strips away the sentimental wadding we use as insulation from reality. A dance through the ruins of modern Britain... Etchells takes a Sadean delight in casual cruelty, creating a flippant and contorted technomedieval world whose gods are named Tesco and Blowjob, the spectre of real lives and real suffering is uncannily present.' Attitude ---- `Thanatofiction at its best and a debut that leaves the reader wanting more.' Kirkus Reviews
