I am not going to comment too much on this. I will wax philosophical and political and this is not the forum for that. I have stopped reading other game blogs because of the inane political"philosophy" the spout off about. Published in 1992 and coming in at 144 pages it might end up being a bit too prophetic. Set in 2020 we will have to wait and see. I prefer Shadowrun anyway. Still this is a good book and the Cyberpunk stuff (such as Night City) is always good.
From the back of the book:
A State of DIS-UNION
"America's undergone flood, fire and famine in the last thirty years. Along with Martial Law and one of the longest guerrilla wars we've ever fought. There's gangs on the street, pollution in the air, and the Corps looking down from above. But when the Outside gets too nasty, we still pull together and get the job done.
Why? Cause it's our country - and that's just the way it is."
