I bought, but haven't yet read the latest Kem Nunn, but I can
his earlier books, especially Unassigned Territories. I'm not
really fits into the subject matter of this list, though. It is
a "slipstream" novel -- as I understand it, a post-cyberpunk
for slightly out there experiences within the realm of real
other words there is a lot of talk about aliens and UFOs, but
resolved whether or not they really exist. Slipstream's kinda
science fiction writers writing about occurences in the
world from a slightly skewed perspective, like some of the
books by Rudy
Rucker, Lewis Shiner, Stephen Wright, etc. As you can probably
I'm not really up on my science fiction. Ted, am I even close
Still, I guess Unassigned Territories does have one element
with our stuff -- guy and a girl hit the road, with a bunch
after them, like Badlands, Natural Born Killers, etc. and,
one of my
favorites, Love and a .45.
It's an odd book, but I think it's great.
