Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Overlook is the first to offer Sladek's Roderick (1980) and Roderick at Random (1983) domestically in one volume. Like the Sladek novels, Spinrad's 1969 title is a satirical look at humankind, which sf does so well. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Michael Moorcock
"Get set for the best thing that ever happened to you... It's BUG JACK BARRON TIME."
