What is Planet Lazy? None of the scientists have heard of it, and there's no record of it ever existing. Yet people swear that they've been there. One day, they vanished from Earth and wound up in a place where everything they'd ever wanted came on a silver platter, and there was no urgency to do anything, you know, productive.
Join the fat, socially awkward, will-probably-die-a-virgin Karturian as he navigates our strange universe of anorexic giants, diplomatic zombies, talking cats, a whole planet of women who have never seen a man before, and much, much more on his voyage to the mythical Planet Lazy.
What is the answer to 7 + 7 ÷ 7 + 7 x 7 - 7 = ?
How do you hide cigarette smoke from your parents?

Hilarious, surreal, unpredictable, fun, and strangely moving at times, this social satire is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy meets Kilgore Trout and Venus on the Half-Shell. Planet Lazy throws modern-day issues and news topics into a comedic food processor and spits them out into a scrumptious sci-fi pate. The topics include eating disorders, low birthrate, cell cryopreservation, patriarchal and matriarchal societies, intercultural relationships, global warming, unethical technological and medical advancements, volunteering in impoverished nations, free-range farming, the robot apocalypse, lazy entrepreneurship, and everyone's obsession with cats!
