Summary

Summary

Interstellar travel to alien worlds is too expensive for Marvin, a college student in need of a good vacation. And so he signs up for what he can afford: a mind swap, in which his consciousness is swapped into the body of an alien life-form. Unfortunately, Marvin finds himself in the body of an interstellar criminal—a body that he has to vacate, fast. But that criminal consciousness has stolen Marvin's earthly body. Now Marvin has to find a body on the black market just to stay alive! Travel with Marvin from world to world, each one crazier than the last, as he keeps finding far-from-ideal bodies in awful situations.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There’s nothing so joyous in science fiction as a Golden Age chestnut, and Mindswap delivers with gusto. Narrator Tom Weiner shares that gusto as he portrays alien dialects, futuristic slang, and interplanetary adventure…Weiner’s delivery is perfectly apropos. Listening to this audiobook is just plain fun.” AudioFile
“If you’ve never experienced Sheckley’s particular take on the absurdity of reality and life in it, Mindswap, one of his most consistently funny books, is a perfect place to start.” SFSite.com
“Sheckley, whose mind is never at a loss, finds plenty of opportunity for his ready wit and comes up with a comic space opera.” Kirkus Reviews
