From Inside the Flap
THE MAN WHO LOVED IN LIGHT YEARS
In a time where a gov-drug addicted citizenry on Terra and the rest of closer known space are fascinated by infinite partitions of Teenage Angst holo-sitcom pablum, a burned out Prof decides to focus his attention on a senior theatre major in his Philosophy class at Proteus college, an odd phenomenon of a person, through known space, a person with massive traces of mutant pheromones. Hudson follows her until he ends up on a series of gossip-stalker networks filmed by small drone probes, good entertainment for billions of bored Terran viewers throughout the system. A juvenile effort, this very early first SF novel was written as soft (SF) surreal techno-fantasy.
Introduction by D.F. Lewis.
Cinema is illegal, either by crudely projecting an image, video, or post-post digital -- all movie stars and celebrities were purged long ago-- Every citizen has his own television show daily. If a citizen's show gets too popular on the realm, a massive enclave of gov censors cancel that citizen's show for a while. It is the New Age of Equality - Everyone is his own recursive celebrity. Paul Roberts, a gov archivist, with a masters in the history of game shows, discovers a moldy document about the Great Purge that turns him into a fugitive, a vid outlaw hiding out near the architrave of seedy leaking Theme Parks on Mars among the worn simulacra of W C Fields, Bob Hope that are indentured to entertain the Terran tourists on vacation. Introduction by Jeffrey Thomas.
TILTING PLANET (THE TROUBLE WITH XENODES):
Droves of Terran shrinks are shuttled in far space to treat a species of dying schizophrenic alien. Brister is one of thousands of psychiatrists sent to Xenode from Earth to study the melancholy metacognitive species. Huxley Pharmaceuticals has a miracle drug that may stave off the illness. Word has it that a monolithic company has spawned the pandemic by dumping massive amounts of hallucinogenics in the planet's system. Introduction by Sherry Decker of an early novel.
GALACTIC SMUT MERCHANTS:
Surreal Alien Exploitation - Something new for the millions of grunts to watch on the outerbelt mining planets -- but could the marketers conquer the Terran pay-per-view market? It is a time when the Earth is swept by the "Modern Jezus" Movement, and it's grotesque founder, the Reverend Cyborg, a hillbilly ex-drug-runner-turned prophet after his outlaw ship crashed on the lunar surface. Entertainment merchant Hans Bendixon and all the other New Hollywood studios on Mars are desperate to win over a newly puritanical Earth in the Pay-per view markets. Even if it means using a previously unknown species of the lusterous sexual Tryphen indigenous to a small moon of a gaseous planet in a far-off sector. Scientific studies have shown that these creatures have a rather strange hypno-sexual-erotic effect on humans. A manned probe is sent to film them as background for the Fall Lineup of Infinite Spice Channel Pay-Per-View shows. Intro by M Philbin.
