обложка книги Armageddon Crazy Armageddon Crazy

A complex and mordant satire. Near-future America has become a dictatorship run by a fundamentalist Christian televangelist in the Jim Bakker mould, with the Constitution suspended, a religious police force of Deacons who root out heresy and liberalism by torture, and concentration camps for unbelievers. Control is reinforced at mass prayer meetings by the use of extravagant special effects projections – the Beast, the Whore of Babylon, and other Revelations favourites in 100-foot high 3D. The best effects programmer in the business is Charlie Mansard, an eccentric slob who would long ago have wound up in a camp but for his usefulness to the regime. Meanwhile, a terrorist group, the Lefthand Path, is setting bombs in public places. Harry Carlisle, a tough old-school NYPD cop, is tasked with nailing Lefthand Path, unaware that he is merely a pawn in a power struggle among the elite (and that his girlfriend is a terrorist sleeper agent). Some great jokes in here. Notice how Americans (the South Park movie, Dennis Leary in No Cure for Cancer, etc.) often jest about having a war with Canada?  Well, in this novel, it’s the Canucks who do the invading. Oh, and Elvis is an officially-tolerated cult religion, followers dressed in His image, and His own Holy Book. The whole thing builds to a glorious climax when the special effects finally run amok and the regime comes crashing down.  With the state of special FX in the movies now, this novel is entirely filmable.  But would anyone have the balls?  Not in Hollywood, probably.

обложка книги Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife

Part devil, part angel, the specter of Jim Morrison has haunted America's consciousness since his premature death in 1971. His spirit seemed dark, and the graphic despair of his Lizard King persona reigned supreme in his lifetime, but Jim Morrison died with a smile on his face. Was his journey through the afterlife as tumultuous as his journey through life? This is the question Mick Farren answers in his fascinatingly complex novel based on one of the twentieth century's most enigmatic figures.

Jim Morrison's Adventures in the Afterlife picks up the story of Morrison as he hurtles through a purgatory-like afterlife in search of some way to bring his soul to peace. Along the way he finds Doc Holliday--and together they find themselves chasing the restless fire-and-brimstone evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, whose soul has broken after death into two warring halves. McPherson's sexier half becomes the object of Jim's obsession, and as the two struggle to find each other in this disordered land, their wild, careening chase through a dozen dystopiae recalls imagined worlds as diverse as Burgess's A Clockwork Orange or Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

This is a daring, hilarious romp through the landfill of millennial society. Possessed of an imagination that rivals that of any of our edgiest fantasists, steeped in the detritus and ephemera of three decades of pop culture, Mick Farren has crafted in this new novel a bizarre and compelling fantasia.

обложка книги NECROM NECROM

Joe Gibson is a washed-up alcoholic rock star, an ex-rebel who's now nothing but an embarrassment. When the TV starts sending him messages one night, he's inclined to write it off as no more than a bad case of DTs. Fortunately for Joe, the TV messages are followed up by a visit from a representative of the Nine, a shadowy council of mystics and seers, who warns Joe that he's on a voodoo hitlist.

    Thus begins a chaotic interdimensional chase, in which Gibson confronts tontons macoutes; psychic interference; UFOs; a very hip, and very scary, demon called Yancey Slide; and the ultimate transdimensional threat – Necrom itself.

    A precursor to the thoroughgoing non-realism of his later book, Jim Morrison's Adventures In The Afterlife, Necrom sees Farren making playful use of some of the wilder jetsam of theosophy and parapsychology to drive an excellent thriller.

обложка книги Synaptic Manhunt Synaptic Manhunt

This is the original trilogy by Mick published in the fabulous 70's of which "The Last Stand of the DNA Cowboys" is the fourth and most modern addition (pub. 1989).

This trilogy has been heralded as the 'lost' classic of adventure/pulp sci-fi novels. A long, rambling entertaining tale of the picaresque misadventures of the 'DNA cowboys' (is the Minstrel not Mick's semi-biographical persona?), this is a literary LSD head-trip thru Mick's unique, hallucinatory fantasy-scape of kung-fu movies, sphaghetti westerns, high-tech magnificence and dazed drugged decadence. In short, a deliciously addictive mixture of 70's Americana pop culture.

The original trilogy in paperback is now very very rare and fanatically sought after by Farren fans as a collectible. A rewarding and highly amusing read, and for those Farren fans who never saw the original paperbacks, a must-BUY!

обложка книги THE FEELIES THE FEELIES

Somebody should make a movie of this one. There’s a new form of entertainment in town - the Feelies. You are placed in a capsule, wired up with electronic stimulators and drugged to the eyeballs, the better to live out your virtual-reality dreams. Be the Marquis de Sade, Billy the Kid, Thongar the Planet-Waster, or even Jesus if that’s your kink. Pick your fantasy from a catalog or have one tailor-made. Naturally, the Corporations charge a fortune for this ultimate luxury, but on the TV gameshows the top prize of the moment is a free lifetime Feelie contract. All you have to do is humiliate yourself in public – again and again and again – to win. And, should you finally climb into that capsule, you’ll discover that the Corporations haven’t quite mastered the technology, and your dream becomes a living (and dying) nightmare. A vicious satire on mass entertainment, corporate greed and media manipulation, probably Farren’s best novel.

обложка книги THEIR MASTER THEIR MASTER

On a primitive, arid planet, Harkaan is exiled from his tribe for killing men, only to discover that the killing spree, and his banishment, are part of a deliberately engineered Darwinian selection process, which culminates in his induction as a starship trooper in an interstellar war fought by humans on behalf of alien overlords, the Therem, against another group of aliens, the Yal. This is Platoon set in a full-metal future, with some brilliant and striking images of combat on alien planets.  The book is, in the author’s words, a "long-range sequel" to Protectorate, and, unusually for Farren, concludes on a positive note, with a battered remnant of humankind escaping the all-embracing and cynical control of the alien masters and, just maybe, building a worthwhile life for themselves.

обложка книги Vickers (Corp.s.e.) Vickers (Corp.s.e.)

Mort (geddit?) Vickers is a CORPorate Security Executive (i.e., a company hitman) in a near-future America wherein the Corporations have usurped most of the functions of Government and are a law unto themselves. We first meet him on a return Shuttle flight from an orbiting space station, where he has just eliminated a potential troublemaker. On arrival, Vickers learns that his own Corporate employer has "lost" an entire underground nuclear command facility to a megalomanic executive, who is on the point of sealing the bunker against the outside world and running it as his own personal domain. Through a number of violent subterfuges, Vickers is inveigled into the bunker with the mission: get it back and kill those responsible. Excellently bleak and savage, the first of a series of ‘80s/’90s "realist" works which claw America’s decadent corporate inhumanity.

    Никто не знает, откуда взялся этот так называемый «зеленый туман». Он всегда появляется внезапно и в одночасье меняет облик планет до неузнаваемости. А попавшие под его воздействие люди либо исчезают, либо…их уже сложно назвать людьми. И против этой напасти нет средства… Меня не слишком-то волновали вселенские проблемы. Я жила вполне себе беззаботно до поры, до времени. Да и что могла бы сделать обычная девушка там, где оказались бессильны лучшие умы человечества и самая совершенная военная техника? Но теперь именно мне предстоит найти разгадку проклятого «зеленого тумана». Отправиться туда, где он властвует безраздельно, и при этом каким-то чудом не погибнуть, не сойти с ума, да и вообще остаться человеком. Но и не это самое сложное.

    Попаданство. Сознание вернулось резким моментальным «щелчком», как будто кто-то переключил в голове невидимый тумблер. Как нашатырем ударил по ноздрям запах чего-то кислого и резкого, потом пришло ощущение приятной бархатистой, но твердой, поверхности под щекой. С трудом приоткрылись веки глаз, по которым тут же болезненно ударил странный неестественный свет. Это называется: «жил был я» — понять бы теперь еще, буду ли жить и дальше…

    Начал писать под впечатлением произведений известных авторов, но со временем понял, что далеко не со всем изложенным в их книгах согласен, поэтому попытался описать похожий мир, но по-своему. Тут есть и космос, и нейросети, и даже немного космических перелётов, но в основном это моя попытка представить себя на месте человека, попавшего в другую неизвестную мне цивилизацию, живущую по своим правилам. Текст сырой с ошибками и возможно нестыковками, и в будущем возможно будет изменен, так что конструктивная критика и замечания приветствуются.
