it was amazing

The Futurological Congress is a sardonic sci-fi novella about a futurologist who winds up in the future after being dosed with hallucinogens. A work of Swiftian satire that now seems prophetic: It was published in the 1970s, but its pharmacological warning is even more pointed in our post-Prozac era. The book is read-out-loud hilarious, and required reading for fans of Philip K. Dick and/or William Burroughs.
