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.

I don't know why Sladek isn't more well knownReviewed in the United States on 27 October 2012
I came across an old falling apart, long out of print paperback copy of this book some years ago, and it blew me away. These are some of the most imaginative and strange sic-fi stories out there and deserve wider recognition. I'm happy that they're finally available again!
