I liked the concept of extending the concepts of Flatland. And a lot of the story was entertaining. But I found that using sex as the vehicle for this really didn't work. In many ways, the attempts to be shocking and over the top were really just gratuitous and distracting from what could have been a good story.

Looking to try out my new Amazon Kindle, I went searching for something new by one of my favorite authors. My search ended when I found this delightful title. Of course, it's not really new at all. In fact, Rucker explains in his Afterward, it's one of his earliest writings.

The book is exactly what you'd expect, given the title. Rucker's books have always amused me with a ribald sense of humor mixed with fun science or speculative science.

It's a short book, so even when the action seems mindles

Enjoyed. Quarter of a century on, Rudy shows in his recent works that he is still an ideas man for the lost generation. And his characters are decent.
