Jeff Noon just really screwed his own series with this book. Luckily he went on to write other novels, including a totally different series.
The sweet death of Coyote, master taxi driver, was only the first . Jeff Noon just really screwed his own series with this book. Pollen, Jeff Noon's sequel to Vurt, is a good read, but ultimately didn't live up to my expectations.

The novel is set in Manchester.
