In a future where most of Earth into a junk heap, Peter Payne is a trashformer, a scavenger, a kid under the thumb of a world too brutal to stay human. When his chance to change his fate is violently torn away, he embarks on a quest to rebuild the object of his obsession.

Examining themes such as cybernetics, prosthetics, consumerism, robotics and transcendence, Nexhuman expands on classic science fiction to build a world as deep and searching as its main character.

First published in Italian by Delos Books in 2013. First English edition published in Fantastica 2014 as Livid, rereleased 2015 as Nexhuman.

Praise for Nexhuman by Francesco Verso

‘Francesco Verso brings classic cyberpunk attitude to grand romantic obsession . . . a thoughtful meditation on what it means to be human and an exciting peek into a world that is just around the corner.’ James Patrick Kelly (Nebula, Locus and Hugo Award winner)
