FROM THE CRIME TO THE RIDICULOUS
From the offbeat but razor-edged imagination of Spider Robinson: Stranded time travelers; squabbling cosmic warriors; reincarnated rockstars; blind starship pilots; monsters both human and alien; a tomorrow formed by today's trends—this Spider weaves a web of wonder.
Sound profound Nah! Herein we've got a partially-disembodied Brooklynite looking for his, er, bottom half, a past-tense-ignoring player of a certain New York crap game from 1930 running loose in the present, a compendium of the silliest weapons history never had, and plenty more. The warped and the way-out combine in a book that by any name would be . . . really cool!
Praise for Spider Robinson:
". . . I'd nominate Spider Robinson as the new Robert Heinlein. Like Mr. Heinlein in his prime, Mr. Robinson writes in a crisp, tightly controlled prose about a future that is recognizably descended from today's world, yet provocatively altered."
—The New York Times
"Robinson is the hottest writer to hit science fiction since [Harlan] Ellison . . . He can match the master's frenetic energy and emotional intensity, arm-break for gut-wrench."
—Los Angeles Times
"Sheer good storytelling . . . from opening tragedy to concluding triumph . . . an imaginative and captivating story."
