    • I stumbled on this in a second hand book store and bought it for two dollars. My life will never be the same.Mallworld is a collection of seven short stories all taking place in the same universe, a place far in the future where everyone lives in space, and there's a shopping mall the size of a planet.The whole book is excellent. That's basically going to be the rest of my review: EXCELLENT. Would recommend. Ten out of ten. I picked up a paperback book from the 80s that no one had ever heard of [...]


    • 3.5 stars. This book was an absolute surprise: I came in with minimal expectations and was rewarded with a deeply engaging experience. The short stories are uniformly good, all of which center around the eponymous Mallworld. The book dwells on profound issues such as freedom and the meaning of life. And it does it in a bizarre universe where proper classic attire is your birthday suit and virtually no one can read.The tagline on the book cover references The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, whi [...]


    • Another hard to find book. Given the title and the subject matter you would expect a book of humor, and you wouldn't be entirely wrong. There is humor at times, but the stories can be rather grim and depressing also. That aside, the book is delightfully weird. At Mallword, a planet-sized shopping mall, you can find or do anything. Bored? Stop in at a suicide parlor, or join the Cult of the Month Club. Worth a read.


    • I've read this one a few times, and recalled it being some good short storytelling that ultimately deals with some deep issues in a satisfying way and it is. What I didn't remember is that man, these stories are weird.


    • Not quite Douglas Adams, but entertaining enough. The depravity of human activity depicted is just about believable, I'm sorry to say.


    • Read this years ago and just re-read it. As good as I remembered it. Raises interesting questions about the "worth" of humanity.

    • I can't quite recall the connection now, but somehow my friend, Jeff had some social connection to this author, so I read a bunch of his books. I remember enjoying the premise of this one.
