Hob Draconian, American born but a two-decade resident of Ibiza and a tie-dyed-in-the-wool hippie philosopher, is happily back from America and living in Ibiza—until he learns that the property he's renting is about to be sold for redevelopment, and he needs a quick ten thousand dollars to save it. Time for the Alternative Detective Agency to find a lucrative case to solve—one in which he can avoid danger, get away with being a smart-mouth quipster, and still save the day—and get paid.

From the very beginning of his career, Robert Sheckley was recognized by fans, reviewers, and fellow authors as a master storyteller and the wittiest satirist working in the science fiction field. Open Road is proud to republish his acclaimed body of work, with nearly thirty volumes of full-length fiction and short story collections. Rediscover, or discover for the first time, a master of science fiction who, according to the New York Times, was "a precursor to Douglas Adams."
