Publisher Description

Lister lives in a replica of Bedford Falls from It's a Wonderful Life, Rimmer is married to a supermodel, and the Cat lives in Denmark in a palace surrounded by a moat of milk. Life's good on Earth. Or is it?

The crew of the Red Dwarf are trapped within an addictive virtual reality called Better Than Life, a game that transports you to a perfect world of your imagination. But it is killing them, and to escape, you have to want to.

Rejoin this trepid band of space zeroes - Lister, Rimmer, Kryten, Holly and the Cat - as they continue their epic journey through frontal-lobe knotting realities where none dare venture but the bravest of the brave, the boldest of the bold, the feeblest of the feeble-minded.
