Fools is Pat Cadigan's fourth novel. It was published in 1992. Fools won the Arthur C Clarke Award in 1995 for best science fiction novel published in 1994.


In a world of brainsuckers and bodysnatchers, of Brain Police and personalities for sale, you can't take anything for granted. Not even your own identity. When Marva, a struggling Method actress, wakes up in a hologram pool in an exclusive priv club with fancy new clothes and plenty of money, she knows something is strange. When a memory of murder starts tugging at her, she knows something is very strange, and that she'd better find out whose life she's living. Fast. Pursued by assassins from a mysterious Escort Service and renegade mind-pirates of every description, Marva must venture into the seamy Downs to find out who wrote the script of the most difficult role of her career.
