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...
