''A tough, sleek juggernaut of a story ... It has all my favorite things - blood, love, fire, hate and high ideal or two. I wish I'd written this one.'
From the back cover:
'Mudboys, dirtgirls, zonedancers, buttonheads, Gravity-well dirth beneath the Orbital platforms which control their world. But the underground and the underworld declare war against the Orbital Heaven: in the air with delta fighters and military shuttles, in the interface of computer fraud and data flow, in flooded slum alleys with lasers and bombs. It's a war with new warriors, new legends.
'Hardwired is his best book to date ... as the parallel plotlines of a hotshot contraband flyer and a sleek bodyguard/assassin develop and gradually intersect, the book takes on a life of its own.' -Locus
'Fans of high-tech SF will enjoy Williams's sizzling prose and fast-moving, taut story.' -Library Journal'
What I've read by Williams previously I've enjoyed very much, so I'm looking forward to this one although I suspect it may not be his finest work ... :-) I can't imagine anything could ever top 'Aristoi'. It'll be interesting to find out.
"A tough, sleek juggernaut of a story ... It has all my favorite things - blood, love, fire, hate and a high ideal or two. I wish I'd written this one."
Hardwired features high-tech thrills and unforgettable heroes in the great tradition of William Gibson's Neuromancer.
