This trequel to Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass follows Alice through a clock's workings, travelling through time, tumbling from the Victorian Age to land in 1998, in Manchester, England. What Alice encounters in the automated future is a series of misadventures, even weirder than your dreams.

Jeff Noon's previous novels, Vurt and Pollen, have attracted a cult following with their psychedelic science fiction creation of the realm of "Vurt"--a region defined by illusion, dream and drug-induced fantasy. Noon has now decided to link up with an imaginative precursor by introducing Lewis Carroll's Alice as the protagonist in a new adventure that draws on Carroll's through-the-looking-glass inversions of reality, and adds a Jeff Noon menace and edginess absent from Carroll's Wonderland. Alice finds herself in 1998 Manchester when she enters an old grandfather clock, and soon becomes the prime suspect in the puzzling "Jigsaw Murders." Noon emulates Carroll's crazy wordplay throughout, and even adds his own illustrations inspired by those of John Tenniel, the famous interpreter of Alice.From the Publisher:
In the last years of his life, Lewis Carroll wrote a third Alice book. This mysterious work has only recently been discovered. Now, at last, the world can read about Automated Alice and her fabulous adventures in the future. That's not quite true. "Automated Alice" was, in reality, written by Zenith O'Clock, the writer of wrongs. In the book, he propels Alice through time, tumbling from the Victorian age to the 90s. Oh dear, that's not at all right. This trequel to "Alice and Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" was actually written by Jeff Noon, who invented Zenith O'Clock...but never mind. What Alice encounters in the automated future is mostly accidental too...a series of misadventures even weirder than your dreams. Acknowledged as one of the most exciting new authors writing today, Jeff Noon's other works of fiction include "Vurt" (winner of the 1994 Arthur C. Clarke award), "Pollen, Nymphomation, Needle in the Groove, Cobralingus," and "Pixel Juice."
