"The year is 1962. Inventor Philip Maxwell has just discovered psychotape - which can be played back for total reproduction of the emotions of whoever has made the recording. Maxwell, who has happened on the device only through his research for a means of alleviating his total insomnia, is amazed when the Hollywood cinemogul Zakon takes a sudden and violent hand in exploiting the gadget. That Zakon is no ordinary entrepreneur is soon evident, for he seeks nothing less than world control through the salting away of all the earth’s drones in his ‘dream palaces’ where the weak-willed can go and experience indefinitely the passions of others."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
