THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF A NEW ARRIVAL ON OMEGA AVERAGED THREE EARTH
YEARS Will Barrent could choose--exile on a nightmare planet, or
life under the tyranny that had taken over Earth Barrent had been
tried, convicted, and memory-washed on Earth - an Earth strangely
altered and stratified by fear of the radical and non-conformist.
Now he was serving his sentence on Omega - a prison planet walled
by a ring of hovering guard-ships from which there was no escape.
Omega was a world of horror, a savage, ruthless way of life. But it
was only a momentary ordeal, a prelude to a return to Earth and the
subtle terrors of its own status civilization. The Status
Civilization first appeared under the title Omega in Amazing
Science Fiction Stories. Robert Sheckley was a Hugo- and
Nebula-nominated author. His stories first appeared in science
fiction magazines of the 1950s.His quick-witted stories and novels
were famously unpredictable, absurdist and broadly comical.
Sheckley was given the Author Emeritus honor by the Science Fiction
and Fantasy Writers of America in 2001.
