Item description for Jaarfindor Remade by Sean Wright...
For fans of "The Twisted Root of Jaarfindor", Lia-Va is back, but not as we know her. She is no longer a princess but a hard-nosed corporate business tycoon who owns the planet financially and from the technological stand-point. The assassin she has hired for the ultimate hit - that will guarantee her unrivalled power - has his own disturbing agenda and he aims to take control of New Jaarfindor. As a former lover of Lia-Va, he has a unique and intimate insight into her true nature, and his is a mission of primordial survival. Kill or be killed. He has a choice: should he shoot Lia-Va or complete her instruction to assassinate the in-coming President - charismatic insectiant leader of the Tinted Green Party? Dr. Lars Handel, has been publicly beheaded, viewed by millions via a live global news feed. His severed head remains on permanent display inside a floating glass chamber filled with suspension liquid, in a national museum, where punters pay to merge with his regurgitated root (the root holds all his life's memories and was a major theme in "The Twisted Root of Jaarfindor"). It's a social voyeurism that respects no boundaries for the individual, not even after death. In this future society, people are obsessed with every facet, every minute detail of the dead's everyday life, hoping to glean some clue, some snippet of information that will justify the ultimate violation of an individual's privacy. But Dr. Lars Handel is as inventive after death as he was in life - scamming the major banking world for billions with his techno-genetic know how. Now he plans his vendetta from beyond the grave, with dire consequences for the living. "Sean Wright accomplishes something in his maddened prose that few fantasists have ever managed. Like Robert E. Howard, Wright plays with the raw stuff of fantasy, the malleable and mutable protoplasm of genre. Jaarfindor is a dreamland made real, rooted in the concrete of the here-and-now but utterly foreign at the same time. This is powerful, mythic stuff. This is reaching into the sky and pulling down fire. Sometimes unharnessed, always bright and hot, often dangerous. But it works." gabe chouinard, US critic,
