Two warring printers' guilds struggle to survive in a world where natural disaster has become commonplace. Caught up in a risky raid on rival printer Sevenheads' bank, the Printer's Devil and the Patchwork Girl struggle to escape the city as the black wind starts to blow. Picking up where "Clockwork Orange" and "On The Beach" left off, "Printer's Devil" deals with the fate of the remnants of humanity in an extreme post-apocalyptic landscape. A fable in the spirit of Coetzee's "Waiting for the Barbarians", "Printer's Devil" is a meditation on power and its abuses - one that echoes with disturbing parallels to the present.
