Roger Sarao, March 3, 2008 (view all comments by Roger Sarao)
How does one categorize this book? It's not science fiction, though it does contain those elements. Cult fiction is too limiting a term. How about a great piece of literature? "Camp Concentration" is a most interesting story. It's hard to summarize without revealing the very surprising (and rewarding) ending, which I did not see coming. This was my first exposure to Disch, but certainly won't be my last.
