With a fire burning along the Jorgmund Pipe, a vital protection from the bandits, monsters, and nightmares left in the wake of the Go-Away War, Gonzo Lubitsch and his troubleshooting colleagues at the Haulage and HazMat Emergency Civil Freebooting Company are hired to put it out--and to save humankind in the process--in a zany tale of a futuristic world. A first novel. 60,000 first printing. *Author: Harkaway, Nick *Publication Date: 2009/08/11 *Number of Pages: 576 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.25 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 8.25
Nick Harkaway's debut novel is chock-full of pop culture references and forays into different genre territories (martial arts, horror, Cold-War thriller, science fiction...). In a post-apocalyptic world, two best friends must put out a fire that's ravaging a pipeline that supplies life-supporting chemicals to the planet. But this is just the jumping off point--the narrative soon goes back in time to elaborate how things got so bad (hint: militaristic thinking and corporate governance).


"This is clever sci-fi with a light heart and a winning smile: a killer combination." - Sarah Vine 06/06/2008

"Funny, digressive, dark, and possibly optimistic..." - Keir Graff 08/01/2008
