(#173467) SYNNERS. Pat Cadigan.

SYNNERS. [London]: HarperCollinsPublishers, [1991]. Octavo, boards. First British (and first hardcover) edition. "In a near-future society heavily dependent on the interfaces between human beings and artificial intelligences, computer viruses cause a plague of mysterious deaths. Exhilarating cyberpunk with a contortuplicated plot." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition, p, 361. "Like William Gibson's cyberpunk novels -– and unlike Bruce Sterling's -– SYNNERS offers no sense that the Conceptual Breakthroughs that proliferate throughout the text will in any significant sense transform the overwhelming urbanized world, though there is some hint that the system may begin to fail through its own internal imbalances. At the heart of SYNNERS is the burning presence of a future which offers little release." - John Clute, SFE (online). Winner of the 1992 Arthur C. Clarke Award. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-204. Broderick and Di Filippo, Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels, 1985-2010 #20. Hartwell, 200 Significant SF Books by Women, 1984-2001. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#173467).
