A wild and wacky SF series--based on the popular BBC-TV series--reminiscent of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Lister--who passed out drunk in London and awakened in a locker on a moon of Saturn--now finds himself trapped in a computer game that transports players to the perfect world of their imaginations--a game people are literally dying to play.
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.
Rob Grant and Doug Naylor were part of the gestalt entity known as Grant Naylor, which created and wrote the Emmy award-winning series Red Dwarf for BBC television. Together they were head writers for Spitting Image in the mid-eighties, and together they wrote two novels, Red Dwarf (1989) and Better Than Life (1991). Since 1994 they have been pursuing separate careers, and each has written a bestselling Red Dwarf novel; Doug's Last Human was published in 1995, Rob's Backwards was published in 1996. All these books are available in Penguin and have sold over 1.7 million copies.
