about this item

The soft machine of the title is, in fact, the human brain. In the second part of the Nova Tetralogy, William Lee (of JUNKY and NAKED LUNCH, Burroughs's fictional alter-ego) works for the Nova Police, travelling back in time to the Mayan civilization. The Nova Mob, a gang of aliens who have controlled humanity for 3,000 years through viral infections leading to various addictions, have worked within Mayan society and in particular the priesthood--establishing the calendar. Lee must redo the calendar, and bring to ruin the priesthood, and the structure it imposes on Mayan civilization. This book was originally published in 1961.
