About this title


You're either on the inside or the outside -- and either way, you're in trouble. A hustling young artist finds himself on the run from warring tribes, mysterious conspirators, body-swapping hackers and more, as he tries to both survive and strike it rich on the vertical surface of a skyscraper big enough to be its own world.

Another splendid outing . . . Jeter's latest mad concept astonishes and intrigues as his sure-footed narrative stirs and fascinates. Grab!
-- Kirkus Reviews

Jeter is an exhilarating writer who always seems to have another rabbit to pull out of his hat.
-- The New York Times Book Review

A very strange and intriguing adventure from one of the handful of writers still doing novel things within the genre.
-- Science Fiction Chronicle

K. W. Jeter has gained wide recognition in the past few years for being one of the most audacious and wildly inventive science fiction writers currently putting pen to paper. FAREWELL HORIZONTAL, his latest book, will only enhance his reputation and garner more fans . . . Jeter's vivid world is fully realized and absolutely fascinating. Original, surreal, suspenseful, witty and satirical, FAREWELL HORIZONTAL is a precipitous read.
-- The Journal, Ontario, Canada

A fine, funny novel, full of original ideas and memorable characters.
-- Inside Books

An SF and horror writer blessed with a surreal imagination, Jeter delivers the goods with the setting of his post-apocalypse novel.
-- Publishers Weekly

FAREWELL HORIZONTAL delivers the requisite number of thrills and intriguing ideas. It's a fast-paced, suspenseful read, offering some fine action scenes and a fascinating milieu . . . Jeter is a writer to watch, one likely to bring innovation to every literary form he turns his hand to.
-- San Francisco Chronicle

From Library Journal:

Abandoning the safe existence of Cylinder's horizontal interior for the riskier life of a freelance "graffex" artist on Cylinder's vertical outside rim, Ny Axxter enters a world of mercenary tribes and cutthroat politics and undertakes a one-man odyssey into unknown territory to save his life. The author of Mantis and Infernal Devices creates a visual kaleidoscope-world of grazing motorcycles, ethereal "gas angels," and vampiric computer circuit riders in his latest novel, which is highly recommended.-- JC
