Product description

Synners are synthesizers - not machines, but people. They take images from the brains of performers, and turn them into a form which can be packaged, sold and consumed. This book is set in a world where new technology spawns new crime before it hits the streets. In SYNNERS the line between technology and humanity is hopelessly slim; the human mind and the external landscape have fused to the point where any encounter with reality is incidental. A classic novel from one of the founders and mainstays of the cyberpunk movement

Cadigan is a major talent' William Gibson 'Cadigan's multifaceted talent includes a strong gift for definitive hardcore cyberpunk' Bruce Sterling Pat Cadigan (1953-) Pat Cadigan was born in Schenectady, New York and grew up in Massachusetts.
