Lewis Shiner's 1984 cyperpunk novel Frontera now available for Kindle e-reader
Even more good news! Frontera (1984), a classic cyberpunk novel set on the Red Planet by American science fiction writer Lewis Shiner, is now available for the Kindle! Here’s the product description from Amazon:
Ten years ago the world's governments collapsed, and now the corporations are in control. Houston's Pulsystems has sent an expedition to the lost Martian colony of Frontera to search for survivors. Reese, aging hero of the US space program, knows better. The colonists are not only alive, they have discovered a secret so devastating that the new rulers of Earth will stop at nothing to own it. Reese is equally desperate to use it for his own very personal agenda. But none of them have reckoned with Kane, tortured veteran of the corporate wars, whose hallucinatory voices are urging him to complete an ancient cycle of heroism and alter the destiny of the human race.
Benjamin Wald of SFRrevu praised Frontera in an April 2011 review.
