DEDICATION: "To my first great-grandchild, Zachary Joel Gittrich, born September 6, 1988."
In the first Italian edition (1990) the dedication reads: "Al mio primo pronipote, Zachary Joel Gittrich. Alle tre Norme, Bette, Christine e Susan."
COVER TEXT:
Established and chronicled in the two previous books, Dayworld is now at a moment of terminal crisis. One man, William Duncan (aka Jeff Caird), holds the key to the chains that bind the world, and he is determined to loose them and bring down the whole civilization. For the population has steadily decreased but the figures have been kept secret so that the administrators can retain absolute power. Now Duncan, the daybreaker who lives seven days a week, with the help of his sometime lover, Panthea Snick, is determined to expose the plot and reveal the discovery of longer lifespan, awakening all the world at once. But he must run, hide, fight, kill to stay free long enough to do it.
In the classic mold of Robert A. Heinlein's Revolt in 2100 and A.E. Van Vogt's The Weapon Shops, Farmer tells a tale of revolution that climaxes one of the great epics of the decade in SF.
