Dead Girls, Dead Boys, Dead Things

Richard Calder

St. Martin's Griffin

This extraordinary trilogy depicts a future gender war that crosses the boundaries of software, wetware, time, and reality itself in its imaginative leaps and bounds. Only love holds the future together in this tale of star-crossed teens whose transformations defy description or imagination.

To read this trilogy is to behold a strange new world, one unlike any other.

REVIEWS

Praise for Dead Girls, Dead Boys, Dead Things

"Fascinating and superbly written." --Starlog

"One of the stranger SF series of recent years...Calder's mix of violent and graphically sexual images and dizzily recursive explications of SF tropes blended through a reality mixer is unsettling, genuinely exotic, and fiercely intelligent. Highly recommended. --Paul J. McAuley, Interzone

"A literary head kickc, pushing gender and bio-tech buttons as hard as something like Neuromancer pushed the romance of digital criminality." --Richard Kadrey, author of Kamikaze L'Amour

"A future world as rich, dense, and intricate as any in recent SF."--Rob Latham, The New York Review of Science Fiction

"The trilogy holds many rewards, cerebral and aesthetic." --Publishers Weekly

"Stunning...a wild trilogy" --Science Fiction Age
