    1. Judging by the cover this looks like some sort of weird scifi with people in floating chairs and space ships The text on the cover says that it s about playing Russian roulette for the mind and the winner taking the world it s not quite like either Not really at all to be honest And I think it s fantastic because of that.The book is about Etter Ho, Etter has a brother, Wallace Wallace took a drug called R 47, which has the chance of either making you a super genius an R Master or make you loose [...]

    2. Interesting Dickson novel A product of its time.Nothing special, but worth reading if you re a Dickson fan Interesting shades of his future books on the development of human culture in the face of technology.

    6. Good anti establishment novel The chemistry is a little hokey, but the social and political aspects of the book are well thought out.

    7. A moderately intriguing science fiction novel by Gordon Rupert Dickson about mind altering drugs first published in November of 1973.
