Product description

Review

"Sheckley has long been considered one of the genre's leading humorists." --New York Times Book Review

"Mr. Sheckley--as might be expected of a writer who can wring praise from as diverse a group of peers as Kingsley Amis, Harlan Ellison, John le Carre and J. G. Ballard--has an engagingly madcap manner all his own." --The Wall Street Journal

Product Description

A classic science fiction novel from beloved author Robert Sheckley returns to print in Mindswap.

In the future, interstellar travel to alien worlds will be too expensive for most ordinary people. It certainly is for Marvin, a college student who wants to take a really good vacation. And so he signs up for what he can afford, a mindswap, in which your consciousness is swapped into the body of an alien lifeform. But Marvin is unlucky, and finds himself in the body of an interstellar criminal, a body that he has to vacate fast. But that criminal consciousness has stolen Marvin's earthly body, and Marvin has to find a body on the black market.

Travel from world to world with Marvin, each one crazier than the last, as he keeps finding far from ideal bodies in awful situations, just to stay alive.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
