Tiger! Tiger! by Alfred Bester

One hundred and seventy days adrift in the fathomless black frost of space, Gulliver Foyle, Mechanic’s Mate 3rd Class, is at the end of his tether. But Gulliver doesn’t know that he’s the 24th century’s most valuable commodity.

In this pulse-quickening novel, Alfred Bester imagines a future in which people “jaunte” a thousand miles with a single thought, where the rich barricade themselves in labyrinths and protect themselves with radioactive hit men – and where an inarticulate outcast is the most valuable and dangerous man alive. The Stars My Destination is a classic of technological prophecy and timeless narrative enchantment by an acknowledged master of science fiction.

Tiger! Tiger! by Alfred Bester is one of William Gibson’s favorite books
