CITIZEN OF ALPHA COMPLEX! YOUR MANDATORY ORIENTATION STARTS HERE.
The Computer is happy. The Computer is crazy. The Computer wants citizens to be happy. This drives them crazy. Many traitors threaten the underground city of Alpha Complex. Who's more dangerous - traitors or happy citizens?
THERE MAY BE A TEST, FOLLOWED BY POSSIBLE TERMINATION.
This all-new anthology introduces both new and returning citizens to the joys and rigors of PARANOIA. Five light-hearted stories feature backstabbing mutants, misprogrammed robots, and crazed firefights in the food vats.
THIS COLLECTION WILL HELP YOU BECOME LOYAL, INFORMED, AND LOYAL.
Several of these short, mayhem-filled tales feature characters from the PARANOIA novel line.
