Black Glass

Black GlassElder Signs Press is proud to announce the novel Black Glass, the Lost Cyberpunk Novel, by John Shirley.

In the future, we will forget who are…

Taking the fall for his younger brother, Richard Candle went from being cyber cop to condemned criminal.  After four years of UnMinding–, his mind suppressed, his body enslaved–he’s released to discover his brother has slipped back into the underworld of the V-Rat, the virtual reality addict. 

Meanwhile, Candle’s harried by the murderous Grist, the head of the world’s biggest multinational. But his real enemy is something else: a conscious program, the Multisemblant, a meld of copied personalities, the dark side of five powerful people, with its own brutal agenda. 

Human society is sinking ever deeper a mire of escapism–but Richard Candle, looking for his missing brother, fights his way through the real world of underground stock markets, flying guns, the trash-walled labyrinth of Rooftown and the fringe of the fringe….
