TURN OFF, TUNE OUT, TRANSFORM! "WHEN I HEAR THE WORD CELEBRITY I REACH FOR MY REVOLVER!" The Revelations will be televised as the suicide bombing of a television studio and the symbolic on-stage martyrdom of a charismatic rock star present the world with a startling new phenomenon. The Radicalized Celebrity. Investigating a wave of attacks directed against high-profile media targets, lifestyle magazine editor, Miranda Black, participates in the A-List Asylum reality TV show, staged in a disused madhouse by the controversial psychiatrist, Dr Phaedra Lake. And, as the programme approaches its violent climax, Miranda finally discovers the truth behind the escalating terror campaign and the subversive ideology its visionary founder describes as "a quantum leap into an unimaginable future." CELEBRITY DEATH CULT combines elements of satire with the conspiracy-thriller genre and aspects of dyspopian science fiction to depict a psychopathic mass-media environment in which the Cult of Celebrity, popular entertainment and the revolutionary impulses of urban terror collide head-on ... with catastrophic consequences.
