From the Back Cover
James P. Hogan took the science fiction world by storm two decades ago
with his first novel, which Isaac Asimov praised as "Pure Science Fiction,"
adding, "Arthur Clarke, move over." Hogan certainly moved both critics
and readers, who have placed him firmly in the top rank of writers who write
real science fiction about real science, with Publishers Weekly calling
him a "Dean" of real SF. His appeal is not limited to hard-core SF
readers, as shown by his numerous New York Times bestsellers. Now, Hogan
offers his thousands of enthusiastic readers a special treat, giving them a
guided tour through his many worlds, in Rockets, Redheads, and Revolution,
a unique mix of fact and fiction.
Learn what new possibilities for smuggling contraband space travel will bring.
Let Hogan explain how he personally brought about the fall of the Soviet Union,
and at the cost of a mere $8.43; and be amazed by the secret weapon that might
have allowed Communism to rule the world after all. See what it would be like
to rent-a-body of your choice and what happened when a married couple both rented
new bodies and got more than they bargained for! Laugh as you read how a technological
advance may mean that a lot of political fanatics are finally going to get what
they've got coming! And never mind what you've read in the papers--here's the
truth about the depletion (if any) of the ozone layer. And much more.
