Coming Soon: S.N.U.F.F. by Victor Pelevin (Translated by Andrew Bronfield)

In June, Gollancz will release S.N.U.F.F. by Victor Pelevin, Translated by Andrew Bronfield.

Here’s the cover and synopsis (larger cover to follow):

Damilola Karpov is a pilot. Living in Byzantium, a huge sky city floating above the land of Urkaina, he makes his living as a drone pilot – capable of being a cameraman who records the events unfolding in Urkaina or, with the weapons aboard his drone, of making a newsworthy event happen for his employers: ‘Big Byz Media’. His recordings are known as S.N.U.F.F.: Special Newsreel/Universal Feature Film. S.N.U.F.F. is a superb post-apocalyptic novel, exploring the conflict between the nation of Urkaina, its causes and its relationship with the city ‘Big Byz’ above. Contrasting poverty and luxury, low and high technology, barbarity and civilisation – while asking questions about the nature of war, the media, entertainment and humanity.
