Content:

Maybe one of the most disconnected storylines, this novel (previously published as "The Unteleported Man") does indeed read like the adventurous novel its process of creation makes you expect.

There is a mass exodus to a promising colony via one-way-teleportation, run by a fascist type Germany (so to speak).

Then there is a guy with a seemingly Jewish name who gets very suspicious about no-one returning and plans to take the last ship his no bancrupt company still owns to the faraway colony to find out what's really happening.

Then by some sort of twist in the plot he decides to teleport anyway and finds himself in a sort of parallel universe / LSD induced surreality and then things start getting a trifle weird.

Not to mention that he was tuned into a rat's brain before, communicating with other rats ...
