The World of Morons

release date: Feb 26, 2020
The World of Morons
"The Marching Morons" is a look at a far future in which the world''s population consists of five billion idiots and a few million geniuses – the precarious minority of the "elite" working desperately to keep things running behind the scenes. "The Marching Morons" is a direct sequel to "The Little Black Bag": it is easy to miss this, as "Bag" is set in the contemporary present while "Morons" takes place several centuries from now, and there is no character that appears in both stories. The titular black bag in the first story is actually an artifact from the time period of "The Marching Morons": a medical kit filled with self-driven instruments enabling a far-future moron to "play doctor". A future Earth similar to "The Marching Morons" – a civilization of morons protected by a small minority of hidden geniuses – is used again in the final stages of "Search the Sky".

Search the Sky

release date: Feb 28, 2021
Search the Sky
Search the Sky is a satirical science fiction novel set in the far future, at a time when humanity has long since colonized the stars. It begins on a planet called Halsey''s which is in a state of decline. When a "Longliner" generation ship arrives, having failed to make contact with at least six other colonised planets, Ross (the main protagonist in the story) is sent to investigate what is going on at the other colonies. He is given access to a faster than light spacecraft that can make each journey almost instantly. It transpires that this technology had been shrouded in secrecy and hidden away behind a secret code, due to the risk of interstellar war. However, the isolated colonies that Ross and his crew encounter are affected by their own lack of genetic diversity in different ways from Halsey''s planet, resulting in a decline in their uniquely strange societies.Search the Sky is the second novel that Fredrik Pohl and C.M. Kornbluth produced using their extreme endurance form of creative collaboration.
