|The last book
by one of the most original, brilliant and under-rated American writers
of the 20th century. Like many of Sladek's earlier books, Wholly
Smokes is almost impossible to categorize, other than to say it
is the fictionalized history of a tobacco company, one which seems to
have been present at, or had bizarre influence on, many of the great
moments of history.
David Langford of Ansible Editions was the editor of Maps, a collection of Sladek's previously uncollected short stories published by Big Engine in 2002 to wide critical acclaim, and reissued by Cosmos Books in 2003. Ansible's edition of Wholly Smokes has been fully authorized by John Sladek's estate, who have helped ensure that the text is complete and accurate, and presented in the form Sladek intended. This includes his own indescribable clip-art illustrations.
