Journey Beyond Tomorrow

(1962)
(Journey of Joenes)
A novel by

 
 
From the very beginning of his career, Robert Sheckley was recognized by fans, reviewers and fellow authors as a master storyteller and the wittiest satirist working in the science fiction field. Rediscover - or discover for the first time - a master of science fiction who, according to the New York Times, was "a precursor to Douglas Adams".

The Journey of Joenes, also published as Journey Beyond Tomorrow, tells the tale of a picaresque journey through an imagined future taken by a naive and innocent man unprepared for the wonders and oddities he encounters. Sheckley examines the present through the distorting lens of a future wonderfully skewed from and yet darkly, hilariously, similar to our own world.

"I have always loved Robert Sheckley... I don't know of anyone else in SF who has written quite so many classic stories... wittier than Pohl... blacker than Lenny Bruce, subtler and more bent that the Firesigns and Monty Python put together... The key words with Sheckley are clever, deadly cool, and crazy as a bedbug."
