SF novel: the author's first book.

''his first two novels - DEAD GIRLS and Dead Boys (1994) - mix horror and sf in depicting a world which has been transformed by nanotechnology into an over-heated, inordinately complex dazzlement of an environment. Dead Girls centres on a ''nanotech doll'' or gynoid who generates an AIDs-like disease in the humans she bloodsucks for their genes, and is herself invasively disrupted by a bio-weapon ''dust'' which scrambles the fractal programmes that enable her to operate. The novel continues with excursions into the ''cyberspace'' within her deranged brain, and much else; it is funny, ornately erotic, and frequently inspired. Dead Boys, perhaps less sustainedly, continues the examination of a not-unlikely 21st century'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF). ''It's the 21st century and ''Dead Girls'' have become the hunted. Half-human, half-gynoid, they know no refuge--and to love one is something far more deadly. For Ignatz, Dead Girl Primavera is the ultimate seduction. But now, Primavera is infected with the magic dust. With her powers ebbing, a descent into necropolis of Bangkok's Big Weird is their last hope''.
