The year is 2011 and Samuel Elmsmore is adrift in the universe. After a series of breakdowns he awakens as a virtual prisoner in a hostel for the mentally ill. He's estranged from his family and friends, and is jobless after an unfortunate incident with an axe. He's also lost much of his memory and sense of identity and is about to learn that the government is monitoring him as a suspected terrorist.

As he wanders the streets of a vast metropolis, the ghouls of his past start to merge with the nightmare creatures of a society turned predatory. He encounters a surreal band of activists, musicians and street-people. Among them is Annie, a strange woman who seems to know everything about everybody. Does she hold the key to his past?

In Dream-Dust Parasites, Ian Hobson has written a fast-paced novel for the end-time of the species. His characters are cynical of utopian solutions and haunted, at every turn, by the vertigo that typifies post-millennium life. A must read for anyone struggling to make sense of the contemporary zeitgeist!
