This is probably the first piece of fiction to deal with the events of Sept. 11th in the USA. It also deals with George W. Bush's policies in general and combines everything brilliantly.
As Alan Moore says in his intelligent introduction, Jerry Cornelius was born in the 60s but he is really a man of the 21st century. His stories become increasingly relevant to us as time moves on. This book is a phantasmagoria of quotations (many from the 1930s and 1940s, showing how our present situation has its roots in British and American policies since that time) and grotesque images, very funny comedy, pointed criticism and, dare I say it, real wisdom. It starts in a protected shopping mall where the 'Gandi' (a combination of Gandalf, Father Christmas and Uncle Sam) is giving an audience and it ends with a vision of a ruined, war-ravaged, globally warmed England whose inhabitants have to purchase domed environments in order to go on living their familiar middle class lives. Satire, of course. But also visionary fiction of the highest order. This is a limited edition, so my advice is to snap it up while you can. I doubt if you will find anything more substantial for quite a while.
