"Hillary Johnson in the 1980s was a writer so far ahead of her time practically no one understood what she was doing," Madison Smartt Bell wrote in the Huffington Post in 2011.

About Dymaxicon Cult Classics

Dymaxicon Cult Classics are new editions of books beloved by a handful of hard-core fans-books that deserve more time to grow on readers than conventional publishing schedules tend to allow. We're bringing these dead soldiers back into print, but our new editions are more than "reprints." In many cases, we're re-editing and sometimes restoring the author's original vision (think director's cut).
