Combining both the fiction and nonfiction of one of the most unique contemporary science fiction writers, this collection offers a rare look into Rudy Rucker’s mind as an author and mathematician. Featuring an in-depth interview with Rucker about his ideas, politics, and how his career as a mathematician and scientist overlap with that of a bestselling author, this exclusive compilation is a must-have for any science fiction enthusiast. Infiltrating fundamentalist Virginia to witness the clash between religious fanatics and drug-addled and sex crazed youth, this collection is a one-of-a-kind examination of reality according to Rudy Rucker.

Rudy Rucker is a mathematician and the award-winning author of numerous science fiction titles, including The Fourth Dimension and Mathematicians in Love. He is the two-time winner of the Philip K. Dick award. He lives in Palo Alto, California.

Editorial Reviews

"Rudy Rucker is virtually impossible to encapsulate, but Surfing the Gnarl makes an impressive attempt at doing so." —San Francisco Book Review (April 2012)
