About the Author
John Sladek (1937 - 2000)John Sladek was born in Iowa in 1937 but moved to the UK in 1966, where he became involved with the British New Wave movement, centred on Michael Moorcock's groundbreaking New Worlds magazine. Sladek began writing SF with 'The Happy Breed', which appeared in Harlan Ellison's seminal anthology Dangerous Visions in 1967, and is now recognized as one of SF's most brilliant satirists. His novels and short story collections include The Muller Fokker Effect, Roderick and Tik Tok, for which he won a BSFA Award. He returned to the United States in 1986, and died there in March 2000. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Essential SladekReviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 November 2013
Without a doubt, this is the most interesting collection in print of one of SF's most original, thoughtful and under-appreciated authors. Read it, read Roderik, The New Apocrypha, and mourn his loss.
