Related to material in Cantata 140
by Philip K. Dick

Also published as The Crack in Space. Another remarkable novella by Dick; he combines themes like the issues surrounding the election of America's first black president with forced warehousing of lower-class people with cold-sleep, orbital brothels and the promise of new frontiers via a rip in space time found in a household appliance.
