From a mirror-image world where sluglike parasites make slaves of humanity, to trees and bushes that grow fries and pork chops, to a rain of fish, Master of Space and Time takes listeners on the ultimate joyride. But once the gluons at the core of Harry's creation run out, disaster looms for Harry and his friends.
High physics and high jinks combine for a wild voyage that blurs the line between science and magic.

"Rucker's genius is found in his unique ability to blend hard mathematical and scientific speculation with an insanely unpredictable imagination." (The Barnes & Noble Review)
The book is well read, but I almost didn't make it through. I stuck it out though, and I'm glad I did because the ending isn't what I expected, but still not as much as I hoped for. Most of the plot is unoriginal and recycled from various sci-fi stories and fairy tales, and it's full of stupid people doing stupid things in unbelievable situations. Overall it was worth the time though--barely.
