Say It Ain't So!
Fiction Review: The Space Merchants by Frederik Pohl and C.M. Kornbluth. St. Martin’s Griffin, $14.99 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-250-00015-6
: Pohl has attempted to make this classic novel relevant to modern readers with new references to Wal-mart, Enron, and Reagan, but the revisions only throw the 1950s attitudes and gender stereotypes into sharp relief, resulting in a dated, muddled mess.

I'll stick with my mass market paperback.
