Set both in a real and imaginary Manchester, Jeff Noon's story concerns a revolutionary lottery game that is engulfing the city in a tide of gambling fever. As a group of mathematics students look at the mind-numbing probabilities involved, they soon find more sinister realities. The Company has developed the nymphomation, and has the power to devour the city's dreams

From the Publisher:

The air of Manchester is alive with blurbvurts: automated advertisements chanting their slogans. But the loudest of all is for Domino Bones, the new lottery game. Every Friday night, the winning numbers are illuminated on the body of Lady Luck, the voluptuous figurehead of the game. For the winner, it is unimaginable riches, for the losers, another week to wait for the bones to fall. But there is only one real winner: The Company, which plays the city's fragile expectations with callous ease. When a group of math students begins looking at the mind-numbing probabilities, they slowly uncover the sinister realities behind the mania. The Company is using nymphomation, an evolutionary process that has the power to take over the city's dreams. "THE FACE" called this "a scarily plausible vision of biorobotic advertisements and burger chain-sponsored police forces."

About the Author:

Jeff Noon is the author of six acclaimed novels, Vurt, Pollen, Automated Alice, Nymphomation, Needle in the Groove and Falling Out of Cars, and two collections of short fictions, Pixel Juice and Cobralingus. He lives in Brighton.
