A HEADLONG RIOT OF HILARIOUS
SCIENCE FICTION SATIRE

MEET SOME INSUFFERABLY WONDERFUL CHARACTERS,
from the mad, gay, heady world of the "arts"

GASPARD DE LA NUIT - human journeyman writer. He has problems with his rampant lover, Heloise Ibsen (assigned to him by his pub-lisher). What he really loves is the giant computer-word-machine that produces his novels - read by other humans - which he oils with devoted care. His closest friend is

ZANE GORT - a fine, upstanding, self-employed robot writer. Zane writes books for other robots and is madly in love with

MISS BLUSHES - a censor-robix (female robot) of delicate pink. Miss Blushes is something of a prude and rather hysterical: very logical when you consider that her circuits are wired for censorship, but it makes life difficult for Zane. He turns for help to

NURSE BISHOP - a small, but formidably beautiful human, who (in addition to the remarkable advice she offers Zane) plays nursemaid to a mysterious group of near-human entities owned by

FLAXMAN AND CULLINGHAM - human publishers, whose language is frequently deplorable. To say nothing of the peculiar interest at least one of them has in a luscious platinum robut no, the daring reader must discover this for himself...

AND THERE ARE MANY, MANY MORE...
