Better Than Life

(UK paperback, Penguin Books, 1991)
ISBN: 978-0140124385 (0140124381)


Lister is lost.

Three million years from Earth he's marooned in a world created by his own psyche. For Lister it's the lost dangerous place he could possibly be because he's completely happy.

Rimmer has a problem too. He's dead. But that's not the problem. Rimmer's problem is that he's trapped in a landscape controlled by his own subconscious. And Rimmer's subconscious doesn't like him on little bit.

Together with Cat, the best-dressed entity in all six known universes, and Kryten, a sanitation Mechanoid with a missing sanity chip, they are trapped in the ultimate computer game: Better Than Life. The zenith of computer-game technology, BTL transports you directly to a perfect world of your imagination, a world where you can enjoy fabulous wealth and unmitigated success.

It's the ideal game with only one drawback - it's so good, it will kill you.


Notes: "New edition" paperback (April 1991). The sequel to Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers. This edition followed the hardback released by Viking in October 1990.
