Revised edition in 1979.
Jerry Cornelius rises from the deep to witness the destruction of the world – and to break up the biggest party ever thrown west of Ladbroke Grove.
This is Jerry Cornelius's third appearance: he stars also in A Cure for Cancer and The Final Programme, described by the Observer as 'pop SF, packed with fast cars, drugs, slaughter and sex; comic-strip SF... relentless doom-mongering... the relish with which Moorcock approaches all experience.'
