Jim and the Flims
by Rudy Rucker and Cory Doctorow




Overview -
"Jim and the Flims is just as quirky and enjoyable as everything else he's written. Ricker knows how to bring the spark of life to the realm of death." --Rick Kleffel, The Agony Column

Author Rudy Rucker brings his unmistakable style to the afterlife in this mind-blowingly gnarly science fiction surfer novel.

A quantum experiment by disaffected bioengineer-turned-mailman Jim Oster has gone wrong, accidentally rupturing the membrane between our world and an afterworld called Flimsy--creating a two-way tunnel that kills his pregnant wife. Jim thinks life couldn't get worse.

Until, that is, he realizes that he's now facing an invasion of the Flims--subdimensional creatures who resemble blue baboons and flying beets--and that he may be the only one who can do anything about it. Aided by a posse of Santa Cruz surf-punks--one of whom keeps an Egyptian mummy in his basement, and may also be a serial killer--Jim plunges into a mad series of adventures in the afterworld--where he just might be able to find his wife and bring her back to life. . . .

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.
