JOHNNY MNEMONIC. [London]: HarperCollinsPublishers, . Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. "Johnny is a courier. He carries other people's memories, millions of them, downloaded into his brain ... Working out of Beijing, he is hired to carry a package to the States. The hundreds of gigabytes stashed in his head are far beyond his capacity, but as long as he gets downloaded quickly they won't do him any permanent harm. But headaches are the least of Johnny's problems. The Americans aren't the only ones who want the data. The Yakuza are after Johnny too. Not all of him though. All they need is his cryogenically frozen head." - publisher's description. First published as a paperback original by Berkley Books in 1995. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with tiny bookstore price sticker affixed at the upper right corner of the front panel. (#155841).
