Cyberpunk is dead: Bad Amazon eBooks

A 40 page novella for £4.99 and zero content preview available, allowing human beings to “link themselves to the age of arts and literature” – apparently complete with “analysis, meaning and association” inside? Sorry but not bloody likely, mirror-shaded techn0boy.
