Publisher's Write-Up

Unrecognizer is a drug with a user base of cult-like proportions. It allows the user to cease knowing what things are called and what they are for. The criminal characters tend to use it to feel innocent and new, forgetting who they are and their deviant ways. Their bizarrity shines and glimmers and glows; their developing Unrecognizer selves arrive to the streets in their wigged out far-flunked clothes. Fhi, a psychic card player, is in for a challenge when he faces these almost demonic souls of the space crime syndicate in an all out show-down twist. Going up against corrupt corporate and government entities, his girlfriend Zel, and her German shepherd named Program, will do what it takes to help secure the future for the whole human race.

Review by Paul Lappen
Rating 9/10
This novel is set several hundred years from now, when Mankind has spread out throughout the galaxy.

Nearly every political and sociological way of life, from anarchism to communism, has been tried somewhere. A series of wormholes, both natural and artificial, has aided Mankind's expansion. Earth is no longer the "centre" of Mankind. Rumours start to spread of a new, and very powerful, drug called Unrecognizer.

It temporarily disables the part of the brain that understands human speech, and the part that allows a person to speak. That's why it is also called Mute. A sort of cult has grown up around the drug. In some places, it is practically worshiped. A first-time user of the drug is called a "newborn." Of course, smuggling the drug can be very lucrative, and very dangerous, as one character discovers, the hard way.

Another side effect of the drug is that it gives some people strong psychic and telekinetic powers, with little or no distance limit. Can the pro-Unrecognizer forces get past corrupt police and politicians on nearly every planet to spread the drug far and wide, and maybe bring about a new system of galaxy-wide government?

This story has some interesting economic and political ideas, and it's also a good story. The reader won't go wrong with this one.
