I Love the Inclusion of This One

Tony Hiss' 6 favorite travel reads - The Week: "The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester (out of print). A nonstop 1956 science-fiction classic so crowded with invention and insight it seems sparkling and brand-new. Among its marvels: an extended meditation on travel—in Bester’s dystopia, everyone can “jaunte” (teleport without machinery), and only very rich show-offs still drive or bike through the countryside."

"The Stars My Destination" is out of print??? This is the reason the Kindle was invented. Some enterprising publisher will bring back books like this and make a mint.
