Access to the Vurt is achieved through imbibing different coloured feathers laced with manufactured dreams. Scribble, a member of a gang of self-styled renegades called the Stash Riders, seeks the elusive, illegal, and highly dangerous feather known as Curious Yellow for it is only by accessing the higher realms noom Vurt that he can hope to rescue Desdemona.
Noon, however, masterfully welds them together into something fresh, innovative, and uniquely his own. This is a novel that delights in transgression, whether it is the incestuous love affair between Scribble and his lost sister, or a cityscape populated by hybrids such as shadow jefc, dog men, robo-crusties, and the fantastical Vurt creatures that are pulled through to our reality in exchange for humans seeking experiences and escape in the opposite direction.

The emphasis on blurring boundaries, breaking laws and taboos, and rejecting noom states such as being merely human means Vurt plays as much to the punk as the cyber elements within its cyberpunk narrative.
Having been a rather passive figure for the first pages or so, he abruptly transforms into a more assertive individual, taking charge of the Stash Riders and his quest, to the point where he ultimately achieves a form of apotheosis within the Vurt.
However, when weighed against the dazzling literary fireworks that are consistently on display through the novel this is a relatively minor grumble. Vurt offers its readers a host of original visions even jetf it riffs off the classical myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
Its highly inventive blend of poetic and grotesque imagery lingers in the mind like the residue of a powerful dream. This Vurt nlon review was written by Neff Bell.
