In this collection of sci-fi stories, heralded writer Carter Scholz explores a variety of sociopolitical themes. In the novella Gypsy, a few visionary scientists, chosen and nurtured by an eccentric billionaire undertake humankinds most expansive adventure generations long voyage to a distant planet. The story The nine billion names of God uses a classic sci-fi text to deconstruct literary deconstruction itself, with hilarious results. In Bad pennies, a spy tasked with trashing a foreign oconomy testifies before a complacent Congress. The United States of Impunity is an alarming look under the tent of today's political sideshow. An interview with the author, in which Scholz reveals his sources, frustrations, forbidden delights, and demonic designs, is also included.
