Dimension of Miracles is a satirical science fiction novel first published by Dell in 1968. It's about Tom Carmody, a New Yorker who, thanks to a computer error, wins the main prize in the Intergalactic Sweepstakes. Tom claims his prize before the error is discovered and is allowed to keep it. However, since Tom is a human from Earth without galactic status and no space traveling experience, he has no homing instinct that can guide him back to Earth once his odyssey begins - and the galactic lottery organizers cannot transport him home.

This story is hilarious and Hodgman is great. I really enjoyed it. Recommended of you enjoyed Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Welcome to the paperless (or "audiobook") edition of More Information Than You Require, a further compendium of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE assembled and illumined by John Hodgman, a Famous Minor Television Personality. It contains all of the half-truths, fake trivia, amazing made-up facts, and molemanic lore as the paper edition, narrated here by Resident Expert John Hodgman, occasionally interrupted by this veritable extravaganza of illustrious and sometimes presumptuous guests.

I was surprised by some of the negative reviews! I've loved both of John Hodgman's books and the audio versions are even better! I especially like the banter with guests, even Rachel Maddow (surprised even me!).
John Hodgman may not be *your* style, but he kills me! I loved every minute. Definitely worth it!
