In his outrageous new Cyberpunk adventure, Rucker infiltrates fundamentalist Virginia to witness the apocalyptic clash between Bible-thumpers and Saucer Demons at a country club barbecue; undresses in orbit to explore the future of foreplay in freefall; and dons the robe of a Transreal Lifestyle Adviser with How-to Tips on how one can manipulate the Fourth Dimension to master everyday tasks like finding an apartment and dispatching a tiresome lover! A quantum physics infused SF novel from this award-winning author.

Rucker is a mathematician bewitched by the absurdity of the universe, and a writer possessed of a brilliantly witty pen. --Publishers Weekly Rucker's addition to the series is a very worthy one, with two very weird, characteristically ruckerian stories. I really like the Outspoken Authors series -- these skinny little books seem to distill the essence of each of their subjects into perfect capsules. --www.BoingBoing.net Rucker ( Wetware ) is what you get when you cross cyberpunk (of which movement he is often hailed as the Mad Professor ) and the Beat poets, and this slim reprint volume showcases some of his wilder moments. --www.PublishersWeekly.com (May 8, 2012) Rudy Rucker is virtually impossible to encapsulate, but Surfing the Gnarl makes an impressive attempt at doing so. --San Francisco Book Review (April 2012) Rucker (Wetware) is what you get when you cross cyberpunk (of which movement he is often hailed as the Mad Professor ) and the Beat poets, and this slim reprint volume showcases some of his wilder moments. --www.PublishersWeekly.com (May 8, 2012) Science-fiction author Rudy Rucker is an oddity and a treasure. --Wired Rucker's writing is great like the Ramones are great: a genre stripped to its essence, attitude up the wazoo, and cartoon sentiments that reek of identifiable lives and issues. --NY Review of Science Fiction Rudy Rucker's sense of fun is rare indeed. He has been compared to Lewis Carroll, and the comparison is not presumptuous. Like Carroll, Rucker is a mathematician who not only enjoys paradoxes, but can propagate that enjoyment as pure lunatic humor. --Washington Post Rudy Rucker should be declared a National Treasure of American Science Fiction . . . simultaneously channeling Kurt Godel and Lenny Bruce! --William Gibson, author, Neuromancer
