Dead Things

Overview

Having completed his trip around the universe, Dagon (also know as Ignatz Zwakh) returns to Earth to plant a Reality Bomb that will wipe out the plague of Meta (which turns teenage girls into Dead Girls). Unfortunately, Dagon himself has set loose forces that are collapsing both time and space upon itself, turning his simple mission into a fun-house-mirrored tour through identity, reality, and undying love.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Third in Calder's sometimes fascinating but, latterly, disgusting trilogy about the robot-vampire plague of Meta; strange to say, the publishers quote Kirkus's remark "a thoroughly unpleasant piece of business" (on Dead Boys, p. 30) with approval. Still, the nastiness—ahem, "post-cyberpunk"—continues as Iggy Zwalch, now called Dagon, the sexless, fanged-angel Elohim, completes his trip through space and time and returns to Earth. Somewhere, there's a Reality Bomb. It may or may not have been implanted in Dagon by Dr. Toxophilous, the Cartier toymaker who created the first dead-girl vampire automata. It may or may not explode after Dagon has lived a thousand years—and he may or may not already have lived this long, thanks to his extended space-time jaunt. The bomb, if it ever explodes, will create a universe where Meta is impossible. Perhaps, then, Dagon may awaken as Iggy and reflect that, metaphorically at least, it was all a dream.

Obsessive, murky, horrid; the only thing missing is the government health warning.
