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).
