Publisher's Summary

From the neo-feudalistic slubs and cornfields of his youth to his apprenticeship among the saleswarriors of Seattlehama - the sex-and-shopping capital of the world - to the rarefied heights of power that Tain now treads, Yarn takes its readers on a roller coaster ride through his life.
Vada, the stylish revolutionary and love of Tane's life, draws him back into a world he had thought was long behind him. The swirling threads of violence and passion threaten to destroy him and the world he has made for himself. Author Jon Armstrong returns to the high fashion dystopia first glimpsed in Grey, weaving a stylish and scintillating tale of a dark past colliding with Tane's supposedly safe and secure present.

“Armstrong’s muscular vision keeps you turning the pages.” (Locus)
“A stylish yet thoughtful commentary on memory and betrayal….Armstrong’s vision of a dystopic future should appeal to fans of cyberpunk and sf technothrillers.” (Library Journal)

caveat emptor

Save your credit. Anime silliness compounded by poor writing and incredible setting make this abomination a waste of time, space and credit.
