By Ray Blake VINE VOICE on 11 Oct. 2006
Format: Paperback
I first read this when it was released in the early 80s before the word 'Cyberpunk' had been invented. I was enthralled from start to finish, as I have been re-reading this recently as an adult.

The maths is brilliantly explained, the narrative compelling, and just on the strength of this early book, Rucker secured a place among the great SF cult writers.

I first read this book when I was 16 and it blew me away. It's one the wildest, funniest, weirdest, rockingest books I've ever read.
Rucker is a mathematician, mystic and weirdo who writes, like Philip Dick, about finding God in the gutter and this is probably his very best.

This is strange stuff indeed. Oddly compulsive though. It reminded me in parts of Philip K Dick, and like Dick the author seems to have enjoyed many substances.
There are some detours into Math theory that might put off some people, but once I started I could not put it down.
What is it about? I wish I knew. A long strange, interesting trip indeed.
