Dr. Adder

The one that started it all - K. W. Jeter's first novel that took him 12 years to get published, despite every science fiction editor in America telling him it was a great book, exactly what they should be publishing, but were too afraid to pull the trigger on. The book about which Philip K. Dick said "will change your notions of what's possible in science fiction forever".

Infernal Devices

The classic Steampunk novel from the creator of the term itself - thirty years plus ago. When George Dower's father died, he left George his watchmaker's shop - and more. But George has little talent for watches and other infernal devices. When someone tries to steal an old device from the premises, George finds himself embroiled in a mystery of time travel, music and sexual intrigue.

Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human

Set in the steel-and-microchip jungle of twenty-first century Los Angeles, this masterpiece re-created our vision of the future, telling the story of Rick Deckard, a 'blade runner' who tracks down and executes renegade androids. This time Deckard himself becomes both hunter and hunted in a race to prove his own humanity by tracking down the most elusive and dangerous android of all . . .

Year: 1995     Genre: Future Noir

Fiendish Schemes

The world George Dower left when he went into hiding was significantly simpler than the new, steam-powered Victorian London.
