5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Esoteric Short Stories, 1 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Pixel Juice (Paperback)
Jeff Noon is one of the most innovative and clever authors of modern science fiction. He subverts and reinvents the conventions of the genre, and injects a lot of urban weirdness. Pixel Juice is his first and so far only collection of short stories, and he's excelled. Almost every one of these 50 stories (it's a lot, but they're mostly very short) has one or more bizarre ideas at its core, and it's a pleasure discovering the contents of Jeff Noon's mind. Noon veers between simple narrative, anecdote, limerick sequences, newspaper article, cybernetic dog-slang, haiku, rap, and any number of other styles. He's impossible to pin down, and you wouldn't want to. Ideas like the vurt feather or the domino lottery have been expanded to entire books, but here's all the ephemera that wouldn't fill a novel, but work brilliantly in just a story. Pixel Juice is excellent.
