Description de l’éditeur
All of Earth succumbs to hedonism and cradle-to-grave intoxication. When drug experimentation and pleasure-seeking reach all new highs, global technological collapse grows imminent. Only the long-silent Venusians can save Earth from her euphoric self via their space-age technology. Thankfully, a dedicated ambassador, Barkhouse, becomes the eighth astronaut to approach the hot and acrid planet. He comes with a plea, a pitch, and a political speech crafted and delivered with the most brilliant methods available—and it will take handfuls of recreational drugs to achieve.
Barkhouse, possibly the most disciplined and iron-willed Earthling alive, must get higher to get the attention and sympathy of the stoic Venusians. But can his heightened performance at negotiating break their decades of fierce isolationism, or has the hellish planet made them colder than space itself?
Get “Through Many Vices” now, and blast off from the biggest farewell party in history.
