About this title

Synopsis:

So you want to be a rock 'n' roll star? In a future that isn't distant enough, you'll have to sell your soul to MTV just to pick up a guitar. And then they start carving you up, making you over in the mega-media image of glitter and bone.

Poor Ben Tendo, he just wanted to play music and make love to Jessika. . . _Tonguing the Zeitgeist_, finalist for the 1995 Philip K. Dick Award for best science fiction novel, is a social satire in the tradition of Anthony Burgess's _A Clockwork Orange_ about the music industry and the commercialization of the arts.

About the Author:

Lance Olsen's many books include the novels _Time Famine_, _Burnt_, and _Live From Earth_, as well as the first full-length study of the godfather of cyberpunk, William Gibson. His prose and poetry have appeared in over two hundred magazines and anthologies, among them _Fiction International_, _The Pushcart Prize XXIII 1999_, and _VLS_. Born in New Jersey and raised in Venezuela, he has sampled Wisconsin, Iowa, Virginia, Kentucky, London, and Oxford, but now lives on a farm in northern Idaho with his artist-wife, Andi, and their modem.
