HEATSEEKER. Los Angeles: Scream Press, 1989. Octavo, blue cloth with black imitation leather shelf back. First edition. One of 250 numbered copies signed by Shirley and artist Harry O. Morris. Collects nineteen stories, three first published here, with introduction by William Gibson. Compiled, with foreword, by Stephen P. Brown. "A mixed collection of reprint and original science fiction, horror, and surrealism, by one of the genre's more radical innovators and a cofounder of the cyberpunk movement. Particularly powerful are the very dark new story 'Equilibrium' and the stunning cyberpunk tale, 'Wolves of the Plateau.' Few writers are capable of getting away with so much over-the top craziness" - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1010. "HEATSEEKER is a deadly powerful collection of dark parables by a man who was writing the stylized naturalism of the future before it became fashionable. John Shirley's prophet-in-the-cyber-wilderness voice deserves high billing among the best. He will be remembered." - Roger Zelazny. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1010. A fine copy in slipcase without dust jacket as issued. (#83988).
