The Burroughs' book which, with 'The Soft Machine' and 'Nova Express', completes the classic 'Cut-Up Trilogy'. 'Earth was under attack, but by whom? The Insect People of Minraud? The Nova Mob? The "White Hunters"? Representatives of Hassan i Sabbah or the White Goddess?' 'Language is the worn coin pressed silently into my hand. Inspector J. Lee of the Nova Police knew them by many names -- but he only knew one way to stop them.' 'The only weapon was silence: silence to say goodbye -- by silence to say good. "You see, gentlemen, what we call history is the history of the word -- and the word is a killer virus!"' A prophetic vision of a world in which technology has gone haywire, 'The Ticket that Exploded' completes Burroughs' classic 'Cut-Up Trilogy'.
