Product description

What's really going on? Who's really in charge? You have NO. F***KING. IDEA. In the near future, an art-school dropout, and AIDS baby, a tech-activist and an RPG-obsessed blogger live in a world where your online identity is at least as important as your physical one. Getting disconnected is a punishment worse than imprisonment, but someone's got to stand up to Government Inc. - whatever the cost.

Review quote

""Moxyland" does lots of things, masterfully, that lots of sf never even guesses that it *could* be doing." - William Gibson, author of "Neuromancer""The world Beukes has invented is both eerily familiar and creepily different." - "Cosmopolitan""This fast-paced sci-fi trip has intriguing characters, big ideas, a new lexicon and... serves as a global warning." - "GQ""You don't have to be an SF aficionado to love this novel that is fast, brimming with original ideas and deadly serious." - "Mail & Guardian""George Orwell's 1984 meets Bladerunner. Lauren Beukes breaks new literary ground with effortless hipness." --Margie Orford, author of "Like Clockwork"."..full of unselfconscious spiky originality, the larval form of a new kind of SF munching its way out of the intestines of the wasp-paralysed caterpillar of cyberpunk." - Charles Stross "A technicolor jazzy rollercoaster ride into a dazzling hell." - Andre Brink"Beukes's stunningly original sci-fi thriller chills and thrills to the last breath" - "Heat Magazine, "South Africa (July 2008)"Lauren Beukes bleeds her characters of color as effectively as the smear masks they wear for anonymity, not for simple provocation, but to warn of the self-replicating nature of segregation." - Brendan Byrne, "The Brooklyn Rail""["Moxyland"] is recommended for what might very well be the emergence of a major new science-fiction author. -Alan Cranis, www.bookgasm.com"After the first hundred pages, I would have to say that reading "Moxyland" is like riding backward very fast in a convertible." - J. Robert King"Go and read" Zoo City" and "Moxyland" by Lauren Beukes - someone took cyberpunk from the toy box, dusted it up and spanked it to shape for the new millennium." -Janos Honkonen, Vornasblogi
