Nymphomation presents an alternate reality in which Manchester has become a test bed for the new game and its sinister undertones. The story is driven by characters recognisable as real people--students, street dwellers, musicians, waiters. They get caught up in what becomes for some of them a fight to the death to defeat the controlling power of the lottery and its head, Mr Million.
Noon writes with an accomplished mix of wit and darkness, and manages to invent a whole dictionary of new words along the way. Whoompy burgers sponsor the police and control the Net, blurbflies carry the adverts around the streets and the nymphomania itself tries to control but has to be controlled. The upshot is an imaginative and disturbing horror/cyberpunk/science fiction mix with plenty of harsh reality and social comment thrown in. --Sandra Vogel --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A group of mathematics students are looking at the mind-numbing probabilities involved and searching for the hidden mysteries behind the game. But what they find are more sinister realities: The Company has developed the nymphomation, and has the power to devour the city's dreams...
