The Mind-Riders

by Brian Stableford
Release date: 1976
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

If millions pay today just to watch two men fight for a champion's crown, tens of millions will pay for the additional thrill of being actually within the mind and body of the boxers themselves, to experience in person the tension and combat, to throw themselves into punch and counter-punch without having to feel the pain. This is the story of Ryan Hart's final fight. His was not the publicized name of the boxer. Nobody knew him but the insiders, because he was the man who operated the challenger, whose mind handled the boxer's muscles, whose agonies were never felt by the E-linked millions, but who would be for a few dozen minutes the embodiment of half the human race! It's a novel of two unforgettable battles one the seen and obvious, the other the fight of a single solitary man to regain honor and self-respect in a world he had ceased to believe in.
