S.F. Masterworks Synners - Pat Cadigan (Paperback) 09-08-2012 Winner of Arthur C. Clarke Award 1992 (UK).
Synners are synthesizers - not machines, but people. They take images from the brains of performers, and turn them into a form which can be packaged, sold and consumed. This book is set in a world where new technology spawns new crime before it hits the streets. In SYNNERS the line between technology and humanity is hopelessly slim; the human mind and the external landscape have fused to the point where any encounter with reality is incidental. A classic novel from one of the founders and mainstays of the cyberpunk movement
