Rudy Rucker published two new books this week, Transreal Trilogy and All The Visions.
Transreal Trilogy includes three of his “transreal” novels, that is, SF about his own life: (1) the growing-up-novel Secret of Life, (2) the beyond-infinity White Light, and (3) the scary-funny-futurological Saucer Wisdom.
The short All the Visions is a Kerouac-style autobiographical novel that Rucker wrote in 1983. Several sections of the Visions later morphed into passages of Secret of Life, and the two books are wack funhouse mirrors of each other. I somehow lost my copy of All The Visions right after I read it, which was a shame because it was one of the greatest things I've ever read. I think it had a cover painting by Robert Williams. I'm glad Rudy has re-issued it.
You can browse full online versions of Transreal Trilogy and All The Visions on their web pages.
