Astrotruckers by Mikael Niemi
Book DescriptionA series of tales based around outer space, "Astrotruckers" is funny, perverse, inventive and bristling with unstoppable imagination. In the illuminating company of an astrotrucker, we meet the ponorists - those who venture into outer space beyond the point of no return - discover the most popular and most pungent Earth mementos taken into space and learn the essential difference between humans and androids. He clarifies the murky areas of human knowledge: the meaning of the oldest writing in the universe, who set off the big bang, the scientific explanation for Murphy's Law, the catalyst for the death of literature and, not to be forgotten, how the world will end. What do you say to an intellectually superior fistular maggot who wants to observe you watching football? How many doors get slammed in your face when you try to find out who is in charge of the universe? And what happens when you switch your android's personality setting to 'humour'? Poetic, grotesque, hilarious, disgusting and visionary, "Astrotruckers" will reveal all this, and more...
