What terrible knowledge did he possess that had to be destroyed?
The Fantasy…The Memory…The Box: A catatonic spacer has experienced it. He can reveal nothing.
The Fire…The Pain…The Dead: The mega-corporations nurture it–to maximize profits and enslave a planet. They will reveal nothing.
The Scent…The Visions…The Secret: Guerrilla activist and rebel journalist Thomasina Lyell has discovered it–and the conspiracy threatening the basis of human civilization. She must experience it herself, its destructive, mind-shattering power. She must reveal everything!
The Future Before Her Eyes. The Story of a Lifetime, a World gone Mad. Her Doom…and the Death of Humankind.
“The Pure Cold Light delivers all that a thriller junkie could ask for (and) sounds like horror or magical realism but Frost’s prose is closer to Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash—hip, tough, and funny.”
–SFRA Review #214
“…read this one for it bizarre details, complex background, its extremity, and its humane sympathy for people caught up in a world where public betrayal is a daily fact and the best most can hope for is survival.”
–John Kessel, F&SF “Short Takes”
“[Frost] takes us over familiar territory, but does it expertly, and the destination…is unexpected.”
–Aboriginal Science Fiction
“Author Gregory Frost imagines a nightmarish future where the world is run by a drug-pushing, media-managing, government-corrupting multinational corporation…far out even by science-fiction standards.”
