Serious science fiction-not the space opera/fantsy stuff-has fallen on hard times. One of the few notable SF novels of recent years is Jennifer Government, not just great science-fiction but also one of the best satires of recent years. Can't wait for the movie. Description below: Welcome to paradise! The world is run by American corporations (except for a few deluded holdouts like the French); taxes are illegal; employees take the last names of the companies they work for; the Police and the NRA are publicly-traded security firms; and the U.S. government only investigates crimes it can bill for. Hack Nike is a Merchandising Officer who discovers an all-new way to sell sneakers. Buy Mitsui is a stockbroker with a death-wish. Billy NRA is finding out that life in a private army isn't all snappy uniforms and code names. And Jennifer Government, a legendary agent with a barcode tattoo, is the consumer watchdog from hell."-From Max Berry's website1
