Publisher's Summary

From the Hugo and Nebula Grandmaster author Fritz Leiber:

Phil Gish has always felt like a luck-forsaken little guy who never got a break. But he awakes one morning to overwhelming optimism and hope. The thing that brings him joy is the sudden appearance of a green cat that has jumped through the window of his tiny bachelor apartment. He decides to adopt the cat and names it Lucky. But Lucky has other plans, and the cat disappears from Phil's place as quickly as it jumped in.

Phil's journey to retrieve Lucky takes him directly into the paths of some of the most eccentric characters to ever populate a novel, from a female masked wrestler to a psychoanalyst on the take and his seemingly psychotic daughter, Mitzie.

Poor Phil's problems are only beginning. He starts to have special feelings for Mitzie, and the green cat becomes a sought-after prize by the mob and the government.

Here's a offbeat story written as if someone had mixed a Marx Brothers movie with a Philip K. Dick novel.

    Story
    "Golden oldie that remains good"
    Would you listen to The Green Millennium again? Why?

    Yes, a childhood favorite. I was delighted to see this available in audio format. I have read the book more than once and will again because of the good story. It has some unexpected twists and turns. It is very much a Golden Age version equivalent to the works of Neil Gaimen


    What did you like best about this story?

    Quirky, Weird, Different, yet still something you can relate to.


    What does William Coon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good although not great narration. Cannot complain about the narration. Although he certainly cannot compare with the likes of Jim Dale


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed many a time, smiled often. The book is light hearted to say the least.


    Any additional comments?

    I genuinely recommend for fan of Golden Age Science Fiction or Neil Gaimans works.
