CITY COME A-WALKING. John Shirley.

CITY COME A-WALKING. New York / London: Four Walls Eight Windows, [2000]. Small octavo, pictorial wrappers. Later edition. The text of this edition is based on the revised text of the 1996 edition published by Eyeball Books. A future San Francisco controlled by an AI who decides to clean up the town. "Stone, steel, sewers, and electricity jolted into living, breathing self-awareness ... The embodiment of megalopolis tortured and twisted by violence, paranoia, and drugs ... Stu Cole was mired in the quicksand of urban life. Then the City came alive ... and came to get him!" - publisher's description. "A dark novel, with an all too plausible vision of the city of the future. With its punk ethos, its violence, its exploration of technology and information, the novel is clearly cyberpunk, and very good indeed." - Butler, The Pocket Essential Cyberpunk, p. 41. Trade paperback format. A fine copy. (#161866).

Price: $25.00
