Philip K. Dick Award: Best Novel winner (1988).
In 2030, bopper robots in their lunar refuge have founds a way to infuse DNA wetware with their own software code. The result is a new lifeform: the meatbop. Fair is fair, after all. Humans built the boppers, now bops are building humans... sort of. Its all part of an insidious plot thats about to ensnare Della Taze – who doesnt think she killed her lover while in drug-induced ecstasy... but isnt sure. And its certainly catastrophic enough to call Cobb Anderson – the pheezer who started it all – out of cold-storage heaven.
