      Moderan (1971) is a series of short, narratively deranged, fable-like tales which describe in satirical terms a radically technologized future world where, after a nuclear Holocaust, humans have been transformed into Cyborgs, the surface of the Post-Holocaust world is plastic and thought and action are both solipsistic and deeply melancholy. The book's portrait of a manufactured humanity works as an arraignment of the late-twentieth-century slide into speed-lined rootlessness and demonstrates hi [...]

      This is a gem of a work by a little known, underappreciated science fiction writer and poet who wrote with an attention to language rare in the genre. I read the thing on the recommendation of my roommate decades ago, but the mere thought of it brings the cadences back to mind with clarity and force. This might be a book, one of the only books, to bring pimply-geek sf fans to poetry.Ostensibly, there's nothing lyrical about the interlocked cyborg stories constituting this collection. The themes [...]

      David R. Bunch was behind the densest, most poetic science fiction that's ever been written, and probably the darkest and bitterest too. If you're interested in fringe writers who demonstrate paths that the mainstream never encountered, Bunch is yours to lose. There's nothing like his work in literature anywhere. Moderan is a loosely braided novel-in-stories about people who have cut off their flesh to add electronics, paved the entire earth in gray plastic and reduced their culture to a drive f [...]

      -Hay cosas que no son nada populares, pero tienen su pequeño grupo de admiradores que las adoran hasta límites insospechados-. Género. Ciencia-Ficción.Lo que nos cuenta. Un miembro del pueblo del Sueño de la Tierra de la Esencia encuentra unas grabaciones procedentes del pasado, relatos de cuando el mundo se llamaba Moderan y estaba poblado por seres mecánicos, en parte metal y en parte carne (excepto unos pocos habitantes, de carne y hueso, que vivían en Rumboviejo). Esta es la transcrip [...]

      Cons: obscure (the writing, not just the physical book, which is hard to find), static, occasionally too allegorically neat. Pros: prose is its own breed, at first childish and near gibberish and then, you slowly realize, near masterful. No one, NO ONE, writes like this mufucka. Vision = unrelenting and gonzo-awesome and simultaneously hilarious and chilling and moving. Best stories/chapters in here = some of the best fiction I've ever read. Must dig up more from this guy, he's almost disappeare [...]

      Possibly the most imaginative fiction I've ever read. Humanity survives ecological disaster by covering the world in plastic and converting themselves to cyborgs, maintaining the tiniest possible scraps of flesh in order to remain "human." Bunch firmly establishes his own insane world of cybernetic stronghold masters and fills it with astute observations on human nature. The flowing poetic prose is a challenge at first; it's a code that you have to crack but the effort pays off. Should be regard [...]

      Thanks to Justin Isis for the recommendation.

      From the late 1950's through the early 1970's David R. Bunch's Moderan stories appeared sporadically, mostly in AMAZING and FANTASTIC magazines, before being collected in this nice little volume. More stories appeared for years afterwards, but unfortunately an updated or comprehensive edition never was published. Bunch was known as an excellent poet, and his careful choice of words create poignant scenes and situations. It's not a fast or easy read, but is an enriching and satisfying example of [...]

      Certain of these stories - strange, lyrical, violent - are among my very favorites. The least of them are hardly there at all.

      AN ENTIRELY STRANGE, OFTEN ANNOYING READ, WITH INTERESTING IDEAS BUT LITTLE PLOT. LACK OF THIS COMPELLING DRIVE MADE IT A CHORE, BUT THERE IS STILL SOMETHING I LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK, SEEMINGLY WRITTEN BY SOMEONE MENTALLY ILL ON AMPHETAMINES. THE STYLE AND VOICE ARE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL. BUT IT'S ALSO IRRITATING.

    • Rob Friedman says:

      excellent wish it was available in digital format. I first read the 2 stories in Dangerous Visions then found the paperback. It was disjointed, uniquely different, and written like someone was talking to you. And somewhere I still have it. I consider it one of the best collections I ever read.
