THE GRAND TOUR OF FAR OUT WORLDS
Pick your planet. Your Galaxy. Your universe. And let Robert Sheckley, that master of science fiction of the sixties, be your guide.
You may find yourself in a world where people are so numerous that life is a vicious battle for breathing space. Or in a place inhabited exclusively by creatures right out of a Disney technicolor movie. Or among a race of beings whose greatest dream is their own violent deaths. Or in a terrifying emptiness where the mind alone creates its strange realities.
These are but a few of the startling stops in this fantastic voyage to the outer reaches of the imagination...
Robert Sheckley (1928–2005) was a Hugo and Nebula nominated American author. First published in the science fiction magazines of the 1950s, his numerous quick-witted stories and novels were famously unpredictable, absurdist and comical.
Sheckley was given the Author Emeritus honor by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 2001.
