Wealthy and widowed, Lizzie Eustace comes into possession of a very valuable heirloom necklace, the Eustace Diamonds. But Lizzie also possesses a penchant for lying. When the strongbox in which the diamonds are usually kept is stolen, Lizzie becomes the subject of much gossip and scandal. Eventually, a mystery is unravelled and the police discover much more than they initially expected. The truth is not always what it appears to be. First published in 1872, The Eustace Diamonds is the third in Trollope's "Palliser" series.
A man in the 1890s falls asleep for two hundred and three years. When he awakes, he learns that his investments have accumulated to make him the richest and most powerful man on Earth. The new London has completely transformed into a place that horrifies him and that it is his name that is used to maintain an oppressive hierarchical society where a large proportion of people are uneducated and impoverished. He is the man with the power to change things.......
This story is excerpted from Kadrey's second novel Kamikaze L'Amour. The novel is described by Mac Tonnies' Cyberpunk/Postmodern Book Reviews as "mesmerizing...a surreal (and distinctly Ballardian) account of synesthesia and mutant desire set in the jungle-choked ruins of L.A."
