Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first major English translation of one of Frances most admired writers, Cosmos Incorporated is a triumph of science fiction-a masterwork of cataclysm, mysticism, and suspense.

Fifty years of warfare, disease, and strife have decimated the worlds population. Those who remain are motes in the mind of UniWorld, a superstate that monitors humanity via a vast computer metastructure that catalog everything about everyone on the planet-race, religion, genetic codes, even fantasies. Those who have the means escape UniWorlds tight control through the Orbital Ring.

Though his memory has been wiped clean and his history fabricated in order to pass through UniWorlds check points, Sergei Diego Plotkin knows his name.And he knows his mission: to murder a man in the city of Grand Junction, a Vegas-like outpost that is home to the private launching pad to the Ring. But this sense of purpose is compromised by random memories that flash through Plotkins brain. England and Argentina. The shores of Lake Baikal. And something else. Something indescribable.

Now Plotkin is about to meet his maker. As his identity and mission incrementally resurface in his conscious mind, and in the presence of an eerily beautiful woman, Plotkin will soon discover that he has come here not just to kill but to be born. . . .

“Like Houellebecq, Dantec takes inspiration from both high and low culture; he is the sort of writer who cites Sun Tzus Art of War and the Stooges Search and Destroy with equal facility.”

-The New York Times

“DNA is to Dantec what the swan was to romantic poetry: an invitation to dream. . . . This rocker-writer teleports us into the cyberpunk beyonds of literature. Fasten your seatbelts!”

-Le Nouvel Observateur

Synopsis:

the first major English translation of one of France's most admired writers and author of "Babylon A.D.," this triumph of science fiction is a masterwork of cataclysm, mysticism, and suspense.
