Again, I don't remember many details, but I believe the idea for this book was that the world had become so crowded that people had to occupy the same living quarters, and to make it tolerable, they only spent one day a week in them, and were in suspended animation the rest of the week. But some citizens -- they may have been called Daytrippers -- broke the rules and lived on more than one day of the week, which of course opened up the possibility of a secret life and illicit behavior.

Michael Dayworld was fairly lackluster in comparison to Farmer's Riverworld series. There was almost too much going on.

Mark Thanks, Michael. I really read these too long ago to remember them very well, so it's good to have a reflection from someone who knows them better.
