If you like literary science fiction, then Jeff Noon is the author for you. Vurt, winner of the 1994 Arthur C. Clarke award, is a cyberpunk novel with a difference, a rollicking, dark, yet humorous examination of a future in which the boundaries between reality and virtual reality are as tenuous as the brush of a feather.Review:
‘Vurt was an SF novel that was really fresh and peculiar at a time when we were constantly being told that lots of SF novels were really fresh and peculiar, but they often weren’t' William Gibson
‘An intense, blistering story about the price of knowledge, full of dreaminess and borderlands and razor blades... I know what Vurt did to me when I first read it and how that influence lingers in the source code of everything I write' Lauren Beukes
‘These books, the best books, discover the essential human notes of their times, and they ring so strongly down the decades that we remember them still' Warren Ellis
‘Vurt was a better Philip K. Dick novel than most of Dick’s own books. Like Neuromancer, Vurt felt utterly of its time and a little ahead of it, like early mash-up singles' Richard Kadrey
‘It was subversive, transgressive. It got under your skin like Cronenberg, or like Poppy Brite. But you don’t need to know more. You just need to look at my wide eyes as I hand you the book. You just need to take the book. “You just have to read it"' Chuck Wendig
‘Vurt is a gripping piece of speculative fiction . . . It deserves to be far more famous' Guardian
‘A startling first novel. It’s a hard-edged book with moments of pure poetry. It’s refreshing, disturbing and original' Independent
‘Passionate, distinctive, demanding and enthralling' The Times
‘The streetwise cynicism of Kurt Vonnegut at his best . . . Too beautiful for bikers, too harsh for hippies' New Statesman & Society
