Description


The anonymous cult classic of the early machine age "The Solid Confessor" has intrigued readers for over a decade: its literary dementia is akin to the best of 1960's Russian Science Fiction set within a gritty, distinctly American Beat literature perspective. Often compared to everything from Economic Genre fiction to Textual Arcology, "The Solid Confessor" continues to defy convention and easy definition: an apocalyptic, dense, horrific, hyper-referential document of the intrusion of information science upon the biologic, "The Solid Confessor" is in the end a documentary of dystopic technocracy. This edition, lavishly illustrated by Kjell Otterness and with a new forward by A.J. Specktowsky, brings our nightmares of a world dominated by science, technology and biological mutation out from the dark and into the present. Vol. VIII in the Machine-Humanist Library. "Pynchon meets Rabelais with all the clarity of a G del Proof." - Thomas Hubbard, NevYork Science Fiction Reports "Burroughs on Bukowski. Double dip in Strugatsky, top with McLuhan." - Seth Morely, Delmak Herald Book Review.
