black titles spine; one of the Gollancz SF Collectors' Editions series; "Allie Haas only did it for a dare - the kind of dare that you know is a mistake but you do it anyway because it's Mistake time. But putting on the madcap that Jerry Wirerammer had 'borrowed' was a very big mistake. The psychosis itself was quite conventional, a few paranoid delusions, but it didn't go away when she took the madcap off. Jerry did the decent thing and left her at an emergency room for dry-cleaning but then, of course, the Brain Police took over. Straightened out by a professional mindplayer, Allie thinks she's left mind games behind for good but then comes the fazer. She can either go to jail as a mind criminal, for being crazy without a licence, or she can train as a mindplayer herself. Pat Cadigan's intelligent and compelling foray into a near-future where you can score a little paranoia from the local neurosis peddler, or even trade your personality in for another, is, like Roger Zelazny's The Dream Master, a brilliant exploration of the nature of the mind itself."; mint copy; 276 pages.
