Synopsis

This 20th Anniversary Edition features a foreword by Lauren Beukes and three fantastic new short stories, all set in the extraordinary world of Vurt...

Take a trip in a stranger's head. Travel rain-shot streets with a gang of hip malcontents, hooked on the most powerful drug you can imagine. Yet Vurt feathers are not for the weak. As the mysterious Game Cat says, ‘Be careful, be very careful’. But Scribble isn't listening. He has to find his lost love. His journey is a mission to find Curious Yellow, the ultimate, perhaps even mythical Vurt feather. As the most powerful narcotic of all, Scribble must be prepared to leave his current reality behind.

Vurt was an SF novel that was really fresh and peculiar’ William Gibson, ‘Transgressive. It got under your skin like Cronenberg, or like Poppy Brite’ Chuck Wendig, ‘Vurt is a gripping piece of speculative fiction’ Guardian

Vurt was an SF novel that was really fresh and peculiar at a time when we were constantly being told that lots of SF novels were really fresh and peculiar, but they often weren’t' William Gibson

‘An intense, blistering story about the price of knowledge, full of dreaminess and borderlands and razor blades… I know what Vurt did to me when I first read it and how that influence lingers in the source code of everything I write' Lauren Beukes
