More than one hundred and thirty fantastical pop surrealist paintings by science fiction master Rudy Rucker. Includes his commentaries on the individual works. Rucker took up painting in 1999, when he was writing a novel about the Flemish old master, Peter Bruegel. The paintings are colorful and have the air of illustrating of unknown proverbs. Many have connections to Rudy's science-fiction novels. This is the June, 2016, edition of BETTER WORLDS, and it replaces all earlier editions.
