Overview

Dayworld was born from the overpopulation and chaos of the late 21st century: live just one day out of seven, spend the rest in a suspended animation called stoning, and humanity will only need one-seventh of the resources it was consuming on its dying planet. Now, three-and-a-half centuries into this New Era-or two "subjective generations" later-everyone seems blessed with peace and abundance. But one man is about to discover that the seeds of the world's destruction were deeply planted by the time the Dayworld began.

Philip José Farmer's short story, "The Sliced-Crosswise Only-On-Tuesday World," and trilogy, Dayworld, Dayworld Rebel, and Dayworld Breakup, explored the fascinating concept of subjective generations. He also began a prequel Dayworld novel, but did not complete it, and now Danny Adams has picked up the mantle. Set generations before the events of the original trilogy, A Hole in Wednesday has direct links to the acclaimed series, exploring the developing world and antecedent characters who defy the confines of a life lived within a "vertical calendar."
