1 Aylett, SteveSlaughtermatic. 16153
Phoenix House Ltd: London. 1998.

Trade paperback.
SF novel.

''UK writer who very quickly developed a reputation for his tone of voice, which could be described as gonzo, surreal, metacyberpunkish, riff-driven, surfer-noir; it is a voice which sometimes obscures the objects of his tales, which attack the objects of their satire through vignettes, quotes and characters from the pulp magazines and comics of the previous century. He began publishing work of interest to the field of the fantastic with The Crime Studio ( 1994), a set of fragmented shorts set in the vaguely Gotham-like crime-ridden Dystopian city of Beerlight, where Jorge Luis Borges intersects (as in his own works) with Mickey Spillane; further volumes set in Beerlight include SLAUGHTERMATIC (1999), Toxicology (coll 1999 US: exp 2001) and Atom (2000)'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''third in the Beerlight series: Beerlight is nightmare city of the future (albeit a future that may be only a week away) where violence is the new art form and artists are the only people with regular jobs. In a cartoon landscape, larger-than-life characters act out plots that would be rejected by Hollywood for being too over the top, yet which still carry a serious message about violence in society. This is satire at its most vicious and most pure. Jonathan Swift would understand Beerlight''.
