A dare goes awry when Ali tries on a stolen madcap and is afflicted with psychotic delusions that will not go away. "Cured" by a mindplayer, Ali is soon forced to become one herself or face a prison sentence as a "mind criminal."
Analog Science Fact & Fiction said of Mindplayers and Cadigan, "Excellent stuff, perceptive, imaginative, subtle and penetrating. A pleasure to read, and a writer to admire." Fantasy Review called the novel "an energetic, intriguing, darkly humorous head-trip extravaganza." The novel was nominated for a Philip K. Dick Award in 1988.
