About this title

Synopsis:

The colony world of Reis was once a prosperous, glittering center of manufacture and trade. But now that a terrible plague is ravaging the planet, it has been quarantined, cut off from the rest of the galaxy. Only electronic communications can cross that barrier.
No one knows where the disease came from. No one knows how it's spread. And no one knows who will live or die.
Which leaves one big question: What do you do in the meantime, while you're waiting to find out?
Time may be killing them, but the handful of disaffected artists who hang out at Club Metz are past masters at killing time. Society may be falling apart, and the biocybernetic AI that runs everything may be acting weirder every day; but they will nevertheless find ways to survive - in spirit as well as body - or, failing that, to die as interestingly as possible.

Review:

The colony world Reis had been a Mecca of art and culture, its thriving city attracting the foremost artists, philosophers, and scholars. But a plague forced the city into quarantine, and the only hope for a cure lies with RICE, the artificial intelligence that runs the colony. As RICE slowly churns through the numbers of dead and dying looking for answers, the artists of the city turn their attention to a new medium, the art of death. In their own way they are trying to give death a meaning, knowing but not believing that they could be writing their own epitaphs.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
