Annotation

The first volume in the DryCo series. DryCo refers to the Dryden Corporation, and the connections among the volumes in the series are tenuous, but all refer to DryCo.. This volume is set in a future New York City, a future violent corporate, cyberpunk dystopia. Considerable use of invented language. The Ambients are people who have been badly disfigured survivors of a nuclear accident. For other volumes in the series see his 1988 Terraplane, 1990 Heathern, 1993 Elvissey, 1993 Random Acts of Senseless Violence, and 2000 Going, Going, Gone. Although there are multiple alternative histories in the series, in timeline order, the volumes are 1993 Random Acts of Senseless Violence, 1990 Heathern, 1987 Ambient, 1988 Terraplane, 1993 Elivissey, and 2000 Going, Going, Gone.
