"Centuries after the big smash, the successor civilization of Aquaria more or less flourishes on the west coast of what was once the United States, a society built on White Science, following the "law of muscle, sun, wind and water." Only the sorcerers of Space Systems, Inc., dare traffic in the "Black Sciences" of atomic, petroleum and physics which destroyed the old golden age of space, for they alone know of the higher destiny that awaits man in the abandoned Big Ear space station. For centuries, they have secretly infiltrated Aquarius through the gray town of La Mirage while crafting a spaceship capable of reaching the Big Ear and turning man's ears once more to the mysterious Songs from the Stars. Now, through the Aquarians Clear Blue Lou, perfect master of the Clear Blue Way, and Sunshine Sue, queen of the Word of Mouth communication network, they scheme to bring their ultimate scenario to fruition. Sex, love, emotion, karma, destiny, perhaps even The Way itself, all become elements in the scenario of Arnold Harker, Black Scientist, sorcerer, project manager of Operation Enterprise. But when Clear Blue Lou, Sunshine Sue and Arnold Harker finally confront the interstellar brotherhood of sentient beings, they find, each in his way, that The Galactic Way utterly transcends their hopes, wildest dreams and darkest fears. In this novel of science, mysticism and their ultimate synergistic fusion"--Dust jacket

Raising hell : plus "the abnormal new abnormal" and "no regrets, no retreat, no surrender" outspoken interview by Norman Spinrad( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An all-new story designed to take a poke at both Christian fundamentalists and corporate CEOs, 'Raising Hell' is a rousing account of the fight to improve working conditions in Hell, with the help of such deceased immortals as Jimmy Hoffa, John L. Lewis and Cesar Chavez. 'The Abnormal New Normal', which casts a cold and razor-sharp eye on current trends in popular culture, shows how they reflect the domination of the one percent and suggests a radical fix. Also featured is PM Press' Outspoken Interview, the usual mix of intimate revelation, insight and outright lies
