Exiled and abandoned on a distant planet, petty criminals enjoy their benign punishment, while one man plots to escape before the whole planet is transformed into a faux alien tourist attraction.

“In this sly and hypnotically gripping story of exiles on a distant planet where nothing is what it seems, Rod Val Moore shows us our own imagination as both wonderland and prison cell. This is Huxley’sBrave New World as it might have been reinvented by Italo Calvino: part dystopic allegory, part epistemological mindgame, and always a brilliantly insightful investigation of the human soul.” — Stephen O’Connor, author of Here Comes Another Lesson

"A...mixture of Sartre and The Prisoner." — Publishers Weekly
