"This funny, clever SF novel owes a substantial literary debt to Douglas Adams--as do countless comic SF novels--but Martel is telling his own story, and it's a good, fun story indeed." --"Booklist"
"Delightful, Douglas Adams-esque. . . . Who knew that the end of the world could be so bloody funny?" --"tor.com"

Jay Martel has created an intricately woven tale of science fiction, comedy, and a sort of "Hollywood Insider" type of story. The novel involves a down on his luck screenwriter Perry Bunt who has sunk to the lowest level conceivable. That of being a teacher of the craft he once made his living in; screenwriting. He still holds fast to many of his ideals and when he decides to stop fighting against the ocean of crappy writing he is drowning in, he comes across the main thrust of this book. That we, all the inhabitants of earth, are all merely players on a once hugely successful network within the Galaxy Entertainment lineup. Perry then finds out that we are being cancelled.
The author of this novel has worked in the entertainment industry for many years and is a successful comedy writer. He brings his expertise to this deftly woven tale of blended genres, realism, comedy, science fiction, and satire. The novel read like that of an episodic show at times, with each chapter feeling like its own mini episode. The novel came together to create what amounts to a complete series of television. The writing was exceptional, and you could tell once you started reading this book, that you were in for a great ride, and one would hope that this is the first of many novels by this talented writer.
This book reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut's "Sirens of Titan" where aliens are creating events on Earth to convey messages to other alien civilizations.
There are so many crazy characters and events as Perry goes about his Earth-saving; but the story is not a black comedy like those written by Vonnegut. It also takes a lot of jabs at the way Earthlings live.
