MADLANDS. K. W. Jeter.

MADLANDS. New York: St. Martin's Press, [1991]. Octavo, boards. First edition. "For reasons unknown -- though a government conspiracy is rumored -- part of Southern California has been warped into the Madlands, a place where dreams, particularly nightmares, come true ... This compelling example of postmodernist SF reads very much like a bad acid trip and owes an obvious debt to both the cyberpunks and Raymond Chandler. A more subtle connection may be with the work of Barry Malzberg, who is Jeter's only equal when it comes to bleakness of the spirit." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-570. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#146395).

Price: $45.00
