Spaceland, Rudy Rucker

This is of course a follow-on to Flatland, with a four-spatial-dimensional creature visiting a human. Rucker's version of Flatland itself is less socially parodic but much more biologically witty.

The fourth dimension is also, I think, a raunchy parody of The Divine Comedy. Very loose if so, but I ought to go check the geography of Heaven and Hell.... and Rucker's four-dimensional shining city is curiously Swedenborgian.

The rest of it is a parody of high-tech IPOs.
