      "in the first shop they bought a pack of dogseed, because Doreen had always wanted to grow her own dog..."

    Pixel Juice is the collected outpourings of an overactive mind. A selection of fifty stories from Jeff Noon's head, each one strange, telling, disturbing, or sometimes just plain weird.

    For the breakdown zones of the mediasphere and the margins of dance culture, Jeff Noon samples the image mix. Product recalls, adverts for mad gadgets, dub cut prose remixes, urban fairytales, instructions for lost machines, almost true tales, dreary onepagers, word-dizzy roller coasters. With new stories from the Vurt cycle and other revelations, including the discovery of an 'off' switch for the human body and what robots use for body-piercing, and those difficult-to-find, how-to-play-and-win rules for Pimp! - The Boardgame.

    Call it Slipstream, call it Avant Pulp, call it Transfiction, Kaleidopunk, Techno-Whimsy or Genre Melt. Call it what you will, but be quick. Ideas-per-page tating: dangerously close to the legal limit.
