About the book
The Gullivers Travels of the nuclear age, the Alice in Wonderland of the arms race, this mordantly funny and visionary tale of the apocalypse was a Nebula finalist.
The trouble starts when George Paxton ingenuously signs an admission of complicity in starting World War III. The only book in the last ten years that Ive read twice...a remarkable achievement (Arthur C. Clarke).
About the author
Born in 1947, James Kenneth Morrow has been writing fiction ever since he, as a seven-year-old living in the Philadelphia suburbs, dictated The Story of the Dog Family to his mother, who dutifully typed it up and bound the pages with yarn. This three-page, six-chapter fantasy is still in the authors private archives. Upon reaching adulthood, Jim produced nine novels of speculative fiction, including the critically acclaimed Godhead Trilogy.
He has won the World Fantasy Award (for Only Begotten Daughter and Towing Jehovah), the Nebula Award (for Bible Stories for Adults, No. 17: The Deluge and the novella City of Truth), and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award (for the novella Shambling Towards Hiroshima). A fulltime fiction writer, Jim makes his home in State College, Pennsylvania, with his wife, his son, an enigmatic sheepdog, and a loopy beagle. He is hard at work on a novel about Darwinism and its discontents.
