About this title

Synopsis:

After Robert Rimmers The Harrad Experiment there is just one way to go all the way! Harrad College has decided to expand its famous experiment. Its program of sexual liberation is to be pushed to the most far-out boundaries of freedom. Even more intriguing, the participants are to include as great a range of human beings, male and female, as possible, and they are to be coupled in every conceivable way.

About the Author:

In the sixties and early seventies The Harrad Experiment and Proposition 31 became watchwords for the "hippie generation". As millions of students on campuses across the country read and talked about his books, little did they know, their hero was well past thirty.Bob started writing early in life.

However, after years of mail-order sales through a small publisher in California, Rimmer's The Harrad Experiment was published by Bantam in 1967 and was finally available to a wide audience. Within a year over a million copies had been sold. More novels followed, including Proposition 31. All of these novels explored alternatives to traditional relationships and sexuality, subjects very much at the forefront of the public's interest in the 1970's. Now in his eighties, Bob Rimmer, always in the vanguard in his advocacy of alternatives to the traditional monogamous relationship, becomes one of the first authors to recognize the potential of the Internet to bring his books to millions of new readers. With fourteen novels to his credit and still going strong, this author has not only bro
