In 2203 anyone can become the ruler of the solar system. There are no elections, no interviews, no prerequisites whatsoever — it all comes down to the random turns of a giant wheel. But when a new Quizmaster takes over, the old one still keeps some rights, namely the right to hire an unending stream of assassins to attempt to kill the new leader. In the wake of the most recent change in leadership, employees of the former ruler scurry to find an assassin who can get past telepathic guards. But when one employee switches sides, troubling facts about the lottery system come to light, and it just might not be possible for anyone to win.

From the Back Cover:

“One of the most original practitioners writing any kind of fiction.” –The Sunday Times (London)

“A brilliant, idiosyncratic, formidably intelligent writer...Dick illuminates. He casts light. He gives off a radiance.” –Washington Post

“Philip K. Dick’s best books always describe a future that is both entirely recognizable and utterly unimaginable.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Dick [was] many authors: a poor man’s Pynchon, an oracular postmodern, a rich product of the changing subculture.” –The Village Voice
