KAIROS

Jones, Gwyneth

London, Sydney, Wellington: Unwin Hyman, [1988].. Octavo, boards. First edition. Signed inscription by Jones dated 14 October 1988 to "Andy" on the title page. In the near future England "is on the edge of collapse into a police state, and Islamic movement threatens world stability, and a fascist cult called BREAKTHRU may just about tip things over the edge ... A typically rich brew from Jones, with a tightly extrapolated future Europe, told utterly convincingly, with a matter-of-fact twisting of reality added for good measure." - Butler, The Pocket Essential Cyberpunk, pp. 63-4. Kairos is a reality-altering new drug that induces a strange aging effect reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's Ubik. "Corporate dystopia -- UK Ltd.

This is a book of beauty and compassion, probing the flypaper of media and popular culture with which we have become stuck." - George Zebrowski. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-626.
