Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Soft Machine introduced us to the conditions of a universe where endemic lusts of the mind and body pray upon men, hook them, and turn them into beasts. Nova Express takes William S. Burroughss nightmarish futuristic tale one step further. The diabolical Nova Criminals—Sammy The Butcher, Green Tony, Iron Claws, The Brown Artist, Jacky Blue Note, Izzy The Push, to name only a few—have gained control and plan on wreaking untold destruction. Its up to Inspector Lee of the Nova Police to attack and dismantle the word and imagery machine of these “control addicts” before its too late. This surrealist novel is part sci-fi, part Swiftian parody, and always pure Burroughs.
