Praise for Robert Sheckley:
''Sheckley has long been considered one of the genre's leading humorists.'' --New York Times Book Review
''Mr. Sheckley--as might be expected of a writer who can wring praise from as diverse a group of peers as Kingsley Amis, Harlan Ellison, John le Carre, and J. G. Ballard--has an engagingly madcap manner all his own.'' --Wall Street Journal
