Jim Killus wrote a book about smog and magic and computers and love. It was published as a mass-market paperback in 1985, and now we have reissued it as an e-book.
This is a story of revenge, and monsters; computers and networks and earth and sky magic; love and sex and terror and escape. It's fantasy and hard-science, with touches of Japanese myth and California high-tech communal living. It was reviewed in ATMOSPHERIC ENVIRONMENT and quickly became the SF novel that all smog-fighters must read. Length: 180 pages (PDF); approximately 50,000 words.
It's the first of our series of science-fiction/fantasy/horror reissues in e-book format, and we're proud and happy to have it coming out from Hidden Knowledge.

We've priced it so that you can buy it on an impulse; but we're paying double the paperback royalty rate to the author. You'll be doing something good for all of humankind.
