Bug Jack Barron
Bugged? Then bug Jack Barron... With over a hundred million viewers, Jack Barron is a media star of highest celebrity-think Jerry Springer crossed with Ted Koppel-and his call-in talk show is the perfect platform for reform. But every man has his price, and when a cryogenics millionaire makes Jack an offer he can't refuse-immortality-anything can happen.

Its exploration of the timeless and universally relevant theme of big business corrupting democratic process stands out now as an unforgettable and bitingly satirical work of imagination that remains as relevant as ever to today's television and media obsessed culture.
