The Pleasure Tube

A novel by

'Thought out to an uncommon degree, Onopa's tale of stranded/psychologically manipulated astronauts proceeds on several levels of significance. It uses as a metaphor the conversion of space into time at the 'event horizon' of a black hole. In the eyes of the reader, Onopa's hero, Rawley Voorst, may have actually returned to Earth from his starship mishap and is being subjected to subtle interrogation techniques. Or maybe he and his mates are actually still lost among the stars. An outstanding achievement; for sophisticated sf readers and those who recognize literature in whatever guise.


Praise for this book

"Reads like dynamite... a rare and academically fascinating piece of work, apart from the fact that it moves well and entertainingly. It tackles something fundamental to the human spirit, and conscientiously does it at least well enough to shake any notion that these matters have been sufficiently settled by other artists." - Algis Budrys
