'Straight Fiction', everyone is gay, apart from the beleaguered 'straight'
community; in 'Career Move', screenplay writers submit their works to
little magazines, while poets are flown first-class to Los Angeles; in
'The Janitor of Mars', a sardonic robot gives us some strange news about
life in the solar system. In 'Let Me Count the Times' a man has a mad
affair with himself. 'Heavy Water, portrays the exhaustion of
working-class culture, and 'State of England' its weird resuscitation. And
in 'The Coincidence of the Arts' an English baronet becomes entangled with
an African-American chess hustler.
