Larry McCaffery (ed.): AVANT-POP: Fiction for a Daydream Nation

Black Ice Books
PO Box 241
Boulder CO, 80306

250 pp., $7.00

Fictions ranging from cyber-punk SF to PostModernLiterature, with plenty of sex & violence and enough sense to laugh at it(self) sometimes. Some older hands like Kathy Acker & Samuel R. Delany, lots of newer punks, and some surprizes like Harry Polkinhorn in the SciFi mode. Bite-size bits make this easy to get into and out of--if you like, say, Wm. S. Burroughs, it makes for a "pleasant read". One of the initial offerings from Black Ice Books, somehow in cahoots with a resurrected Fiction Collective, which has seen several incarnations.--luigi
