I'm excited about Steve Aylett's new book, Novahead, the last installment in the meta-satirical Beerlight series. Here's a description and a scintillating blurb:

About to quit the failed experiment of civilization, fake detective Taffy Atom is detained by one last casea boy with a bomb in his mind. But what’s the trigger? Pursued by cops, mobsters, mercenaries and a mechanical swan, Atom carries the bomb and trigger through Beerlight City, the single holdout of creative mischief in a world overtaken by the trend-led Fadlands. By the relentless principles of gun karma Aylett’s final Beerlight book lands you in the Delayed Reaction Bar and fixes you a glass of antifreeze with everything in it. Listen to your heart. It will not stop slowly.

“The most original and most consciousness-altering living writer in the English language, not to mention one of the funniest. In
Novahead, Aylett delivers his most searing work to date and comes up with noir fiction so black it’s fluorescent.” Alan Moore
