VURT BY JEFF NOON
A brilliantly innovative and highly entertaining novel from a literary pioneer.
Take a trip in a stranger’s head. Travel rain-shot streets with a gang of hip malcontents, hooked on the most powerful drug you can imagine. Yet Vurt feathers are not for the weak. As the mysterious Game Cat says, ‘Be careful, be very careful’. But Scribble isn’t listening. He has to find his lost love. His journey is a mission to find Curious Yellow, the ultimate, perhaps even mythical Vurt feather. As the most powerful narcotic of all, Scribble must be prepared to leave his current reality behind.
‘Vurt is a gripping piece of speculative fiction’
‘Passionate, distinctive, demanding and enthralling’
‘Refreshing, disturbing and original’
POLLEN BY JEFF NOON
The sweet death of Coyote, master taxi driver, was only the first.
Soon people are sneezing and dying all overManchester. Telekinetic cop Sybil Jones knows that, like Coyote, they died happy – but even a happy death can be a murder. As exotic blooms begin to flower all over the city, the pollen count is racing towards 2000 and Sybil is running out of time.
‘Britain’s first star of cyberpunk’
‘Great Fun. Read it’
