John Brunner


Stand on Zanzibar
Year 1968
Publisher Del Rey  (Ballantine)
ISBN 0345347870



Donald Hogan was a mild-mannered student, a dilettante intellectual, at least that's what everyone was supposed to think he was.  But Donald knew otherwise.

He knew he was a spy.

But what Donald didn't know was that in a world overpopulated by the billions - in a society squeezed into hive-living madness by megabrain computers, mass-marketed psychedelics, and eugenics - where everyone was struggling for life ... he himself was programmed for death!




Winner of the Hugo Award

"John Brunner takes a lot of ordinary science fiction and speculative non-fiction and edits it non-randomly into a brilliant non-novel ... Brunner has invented a whole new way of writing book-length science fiction
Norman Spinrad



View of the Celtic Sea and English Channel

Coccoliths in the Celtic Sea
Coccolithophores are a group of phytoplankton that are identifiable from space. These microscopic plants armor themselves with external plates of calcium carbonate. The plates, or coccoliths, give the ocean a milky white or turquoise appearance during intense blooms.

This natural-color view of the Celtic Sea and English Channel was taken by the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer on NASA's Terra satellite on June 4, 2001.
