Publisher's Synopsis

Author Rudy Rucker offers a one-of-a-kind "history" of the future in this staggeringly inventive metafictional novel involving UFOs and time travel.

Frank Shook, who lives in the hills of California outside Silicon Valley, is a UFO abductee, communicating with extraterrestrial beings who take him on wild flying saucer rides, zig-zagging through time to give Frank vivid looks into the future of humanity.

Frank's bizarre claims are intriguing to author Rudy Rucker, who agrees to transcribe Frank's notes from his journeys. The result? A fascinating, and illuminating account of the forthcoming evolution of humankind. From telepathy to time travel to transhumanity, from hardware to software to wetware, Saucer Wisdom, spanning two millennia, is a profoundly creative work of truly speculative meta-fiction, a catalog of the future as only Rudy Rucker (the award-winning real-life author, that is) could tell it.

Night Shade Books' ten-volume series with Rudy Rucker collects nine of the brilliantly weird novels for which the mathematician-turned-author is known, as well as a tenth, never-before-published book, Million-Mile Road Trip. We're proud to collect in one place so much of the work of this influential figure in the early cyberpunk scene, and to share Rucker's fascinating, unique worldview with an entirely new generation of readers.
