Overview

A smog researcher dies, and a monster is born of human nature, atmospheric poisons, and the twisted spirits of the air. To combat this evil incarnation the heroes must bring to bear the forces of science, magic, and computers. There is time for fun and love and some pre-cyberpunk computational terror in this exciting book.

Remember the days of complex systems managed on 80x25 monitors? Well, Jim did, and he wrote a book exploring the fantasy/horror possibilities. It's a trip through the past of our horrified imaginations, and you can still read, even if you already have a supercomputer on your smartphone. After all, we still have to breathe, don't we?

Editorial Reviews

James Lodge
James Killus leads a double life. During the working hours he is an air pollution modeler with the well-known modeling firm System Applications, Inc.; in whatever spare time this may leave him, he writes science fiction, primarily of the sort that appears in the well-known bastion of old-guard "hard" science fiction, ANALOG.

....enjoy it for what it is—the first and only book, to my knowledge, wherein the whole drama is moved by air pollution.
