Novahead

by Steve Aylett
Release date: 2011
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

About to quit the failed experiment of civilisation, fake detective Taffy Atom is detained by one last case - a boy with a bomb in his mind. But what's the trigger? Pursued by cops, mobsters, mercenaries and a mechanical swan, Atom carries the bomb and trigger through Beerlight City, the single holdout of creative mischief in a world overtaken by the trend-led Fadlands. By the relentless principles of gun karma Aylett's final Beerlight book lands you in the Delayed Reaction Bar and fixes you a glass of antifreeze with everything in it. Listen to your heart. It will not stop slowly.

"The most original and most consciousness-altering living writer in the English language, not to mention one of the funniest. In NOVAHEAD Aylett delivers his most searing work to date and comes up with noir fiction so black it's fluorescent." - Alan Moore

Steve Aylett has been described as "utterly original" (SFX), "an unstoppable master of space and time" (Asimov's), "the most original voice in the literary scene" (Michael Moorcock) and "the coolest writer alive today" (Starburst).

"Aylett has made a career out of redefining the boundaries of science fiction - and sanity." - Barnes & Noble Spotlight Feature
