In this Philip K Dick award winning book, Rudy Ruck introduces readers to a future Earth unlike any other. Readers meet Cobb Anderson, the creator of rebellious robots who have taken over the moon and now are offering him a chance at a long lifetime he'd never dreamed possible. This story also introduces readers to a future drug culture and technologies out of one wild and quirky imagination. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to push the limits of their own imagination.
