Publisher Description

Talking fridges, human clone farms, flying shopping malls – we must be in the Michael Marshall Smith zone. A world all too close to our own…

Spares – human clones, the ultimate health insurance. An eye for an eye – but some people are doing all the taking.

Spares – the story of Jack Randall: burnt-out, dropped out, and way overdrawn at the luck bank. But as caretaker on a Spares Farm, he still has a choice, and it might make a difference…if he can run fast enough.

Spares – a breathless race through strange, disturbing territories in a world all too close to our own.

Spares – it’s fiction. But only just…

Reviews

‘Comic, cruel, twisted and surreal’
EMPIRE

‘Some books stretch the imagination. This one mugs it’
DAVID BADDIEL

‘Tense, exciting and at times very, very funny… He’s worth every penny’
TIME OUT

‘Witty, hard-edged and coruscatingly imaginative… Compellingly off-kilter’
NEW SCIENTIST

‘Spares blurs imaginative surrealism and hard-bitten horror with a storytelling skill that can only be described as pure genius’
VENUE

‘A compulsively readable melding of hardboiled narrative and hardware invention’
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
