In a near-future dystopia, a limited nuclear strike has destroyed portions of Europe, bringing the remaining nation-cities under control of the Second Alliance, a frighteningly fundamentalist international security corporation with designs on world domination. The only defense against the Alliance's creeping totalitarianism is the New Resistance, a polyglot team of rebels that includes Rick Rickenharp, a retro-rocker whose artistic and political sensibilities intertwine, and John Swenson, a mole who has infiltrated the Alliance. As the fight continues and years progress, so does the technology and brutality of the Alliance . . . but ordinary people like the damaged visionary Smoke, Claire Rimpler on FirStep, and Dance Torrence and his fellow urban warriors on Earth are bound together by the truth and a single purpose: to keep the darkness from becoming humankind's Total Eclipse—or die trying! An omnibus of all three novels—revised by the author of the prophetic, still frighteningly relevant cyberpunk masterpieces: Eclipse, Eclipse Penumbra, and Eclipse Corona. With an introduction by Richard Kadrey and biographical note by Bruce Sterling.

First review of the the omnibus edition but I was surprised that none of individual books in the trilogy had been reviewed. Let`s get the potentially troublesome c-word out of the way; "cyberpunk" is not a particularly useful descriptor whether accurate or not.This is a great book; a near future, dystopian, techno-thriller with a heart of gold. It does bear comparison to the best of William Gibson, and does incorporate internet/computer grid elements (to a much larger extent in the 3rd book), but if this was the only book in the world it would stand on its own, thank you.Read it.read more
