Grand Junctionby Maurice G Dantec
Synopses & Reviews
Visionary, gripping, sumptuous and tantalizing, Grande Junction is a masterwork of hip, literary science fiction.
On October 4, 2057, most electronic devices on Earth are infected and destroyed by unknown viruses, and billions of people dependent on machine interfaces are killed as a result. Twelve years later, the survivors are sunk in a new Dark Age, a grim afterworld in which the only law is the law of the jungle.
In the sprawling ruins of Grande Junction, a thriving urban community centered on an abandoned spaceport, civilization is hanging on by its fingernails. In this last fragile outpost of knowledge and reason, hope and faith, a second wave of lethal viruses is unleashed-viruses that attack human beings directly, stripping away language, thought, humanity itself.
But it is also here that a young boy, a guitar-playing prodigy named Link de Nova, discovers within himself the power to fight a malevolent entity determined to remake the world in its own bleak image. Now, as the viruses spread and enemies converge on Grande Junction, Link and his friends and protectors, Chrysler Campbell and Yuri McCoy, prepare to fight for the survival of the human race with rifles, radios, and rock n roll.
From the bestselling author of Cosmos Incorporated comes a powerful future vision in which an unlikely assassin finds himself in the middle of an apocalyptic struggle between humanity and technology
In a visionary, gripping, sumptuous, and tantalizing follow-up to his acclaimed Cosmos Incorporated, Maurice Dantec again explores an Orwellian technologically dominated post-human world.
Technology died first. Now all is unraveling and consuming human life with it. A ragtag group of survivors, smugglers, soldiers, a sheriff, and a beautiful stargazer fight to keep Link de Nova alive. He has the power to heal machines. But what can he do for humankind?
A bestseller in France, Grand Junction is a masterful work of hip, literary science fiction.
