The shopping center as big as a planet is back - this time with over 80 pages of new material including the first new Mallworld story in thirty years - the jaw-dropping Mallworld Becomes Elektra which takes the premise of the entire satirical universe and turns it on its ear.
A pungent satire of the rampant commercialism of the 1980s, S.P, Somtow's Mallworld stories first appeared in Isaac Asimov's during the post-Star Wars age of science fiction.
Many things predicted in the Mallworld stories are happening today, from roller coasters inside shopping malls to cloning your filet mignon.
Other things haven't happened yet but who knows? From suicide parlors to dining on the larvae of super-intelligent alliens, from baby showrooms to child repo agents ... everything is possible in Mallworld, the comic yet chilling dystopia of a future gone wild.
Join the cult-of-the-month club, Insert your suppository vaculax, and shop for a nice second- hand body, preferably with compound eyes ... and if you are very lucky, party with the barJulians, who own simply everything ... including your soul.
BEYOND MALLWORLD is the newest, most complete collection of Mallworld stories including the complete illustrations of Karl Kofoed and a brand new novella about a Mallworld in which people have ceased to shop!
