Publisher's Summary

This is a cycle.

Unalleviated, its components are connected by electricity and fed through the rage of lightning. Insect and road monsters scour the desert. Bodies morph into new constructions, only partially human and searching for conclusion. Tongues entwine in an embrace of benthos, while mermaids and jellyfish glow in tandem.

The moon is waiting. Dream.

An absolute mind fuck!

if you like intense emotional questions about personality, identity, and life and death you will probably like this. It takes some themes from neuromancer and mixes them up in new ways. The story reads like a collection of short stories. But with excerpts from the main character, Cablejuice.

Most of the short stories are really dark though so be prepared to set it down for a week, or a month, or a year after reading one. I also made the mistake of listening to this book at the beginning of a depressive mood swing, which is retrospect, was an extremely bad choice.

This book is simultaneously one of the best written books I have read, and one of the most terrifying for my personal idea of self. There are a few things on my metaphorical book shelf that I don't pick up or finish, but haunts me in a way that sticks with me for years. This will be on there, and although I am 2-3 hours into the book, I probably will not finish it. That is, unless I have a week to stare blankly at at wall.

If I had one complaint, it's that the stories are derivative at times and doesn't fit with the overarching story.
