The book is in near fine condition (pictorial boards) as is the unclipped dust jacket with no significant wear. Internally, the pages are clean and tight with no tears or other inscriptions.
Although The Song of Synth is, to an extent, informed by radical politics, something of a turn-off to establishment publishing unless it is made to seem a form of fashion or incarnated wishy-washy liberal cant, the book could be marketed in a number of ways that would not appear in the least trangressive. Indeed on one level The Song of the Synth might well be perceived as a science fiction novel that explores a personal odyssey through the process of detox and rehab, a kind of Pilgrim's Progress for the narcotized. - Lucius Shepard, from his introduction.
In Absinth, you'll meet Iris, a fortune-teller able to see not the future but weirdly anachronistic versions of the past. Sid Saperstein, a shamless huckster chosen to publish a sacred manuscript whose message will shake heaven and earth alike. Hermes, the Greek messenger god, dispatched by Zeus to sound out his new deities, still smarting from the licking they took two thousand years ago, on how best to take advantage of the coming changes, whatever they may be. And God Himself, whose enigmatic voice addresses us throughout the novel in the contemporary koans of advertising lingo. - Paul Witcover, from his introduction.
