It's different!

This is not science and reality-based SF, it's a flight of fancy by an author who was about to slip into the self-indulgent wibble-fest of the 1960s New Wave. It's a work by a master SF author, but not a masterwork; just one part of the impressuve Aldiss legacy, and a rather weird one.
