Really, who can resist this title? I couldnt. This book consists of eight linked science fiction stories featuring interstellar neer-do-wells, Vossoff and Nimmitz, in a wacky slapstick universe. Fans of Douglas Adams work will want to check this out.

I think the title says it all.
Ill admit I didnt pick this up just because of the title. I read it because my sons Nintendo DS addiction was starting to worry me. Still, it is a great title, and also a very reassuring read that suggests my sons Nintendo habit may actually be a good thing....
Its the subtitle that got me on this one. After all, who didnt grow up groovy and clueless in the 1970s? I know I did. And these funny, well-written essays covering the authors youth and young adulthood in New York show that she did too.
A quirky little title for a quirky and charming novel. When art gallery assistant Jane Laine accompanies internationally renowned sculptor Ian Rhys-Fitzsimmons on a six month tour, love ensues.
