Quietly, he straps on his sword and flexes the hands that deal death. The brotherhood’s computer has spoken, and he must carry out its orders. His mission will take him out into the sick, post-cataclysmic world, to the pleasure-city of Litz, with its Sex-O-Mars, its Torture Parlours, its genetically-bred whores, where Billy and Reeve, the DNA Cowboys, have found their private hells. It is in Litz that he must find a woman with the artificially-arrested body-growth of a thirteen-year-old girl and the mind of a sadistic megalomaniac — and kill her before she can drag the human race to final destruction. Brutal, shocking and terrifying in its visions, Synaptic Manhunt is the second volume in Mick Farren’s devastating science fiction trilogy which opened with the brilliant The Quest of the DNA Cowboys and concludes with The Neural Atrocity. First published in 1976, this digital edition of Synaptic Manhunt has a new introduction by the author and is embedded with audio content. ‘Story or essay, poem or rock song, they all carry the same fierce engagement which has never left this determinedly self-invented individualist whether arguing his case at the Old Bailey or strutting his stuff on stage at London’s Roundhouse. Read him and rage’ Michael Moorcock ‘At 68, Mick Farren links back to an era when giants like Burroughs, Thompson and Morrison still strode the earth, and rock ’n’ roll outsider poetry were linked, along with wider, more amorphous notions of youth-as-rebel-culture and drugs-as-shamanic-tools, standing firm against the rapacious advances of the military-industrial greedheads and all who serve them’ Ben Graham, Bleeding Cheek Press ‘Mick Farren writes lovely prose’ Germaine Greer ‘Mick Farren has had a long illustrious career as an infamous editor, journalist and English rock star… (He) has important points to make about the times we live in’ New York Paper ‘Farren’s fertile imagination has a snaggle-toothed bite all of its own’ NME ‘You cannot believe a word Mick Farren says’ John Lydon
