While the science in this science fiction novel makes Philip K Dick seem like Arthur C Clarke this was pure non stop entertainment It has a light humorous tone throughout though this isn t like a Douglas Adams novel but like early PKD only slightly ridiculous and free wheelingThe basic gist is that there s a man Keith living in the very near future at the time who works as an editor for various sf and weird magazines that were so prevalent back in the day On the same day that a rocket is going to land on the moon for the first time which is supposed to create a huge explosion of light so everyone can see it from the Earth Keith is suddenly transported from his boss s estate where he was visiting towell the same place only everything s different In this new world all the crazy things from his pulp magazines appear to be true There are huge purple aliens walking the streets of Manhattan interstellar wars are taking place in space people use credits instead of cash and every night there s a mysterious mistout where the very air is blackened to the point where no one can see than a foot or two in front of them Everyone stays indoors during these times as there are roving bands of killers that are able to navigate the blackness Keith slowly realizes that this is a very dangerous reality to live in and he must figure out just what the hell is going on What Mad Universe was my first novel by Fredric Brown though I ve read a handful of his shorts and short shorts and I will most definitely be reading I d originally planned for one of his noir thrillers to be my first Brown read and was nearly gutted to find my vintage copy of Here Comes a Candle vandalized with underlining throughout which I cannot abide So this was my second choice and I m glad I read it first as it turned out that I really needed something absurd and fun and this was perfect At first my rationalist brain was annoyed by certain seeming plot holes in this alternate reality but Brown had a clever explanation that pretty much negates any and all nit picks I or anyone else could have as far as the nonsensical aspects of parts of itHighly recommended for those into alternate world type sf and for those just looking for a fun action filled read40 Stars
