Don’t have time to read? Book-A-Minute SF/F

"Let's face it. There's a lot of science fiction and fantasy out there and very little time to read it in. Well sit back and relax, because your troubles are solved! We here at Book-A-Minute SF/F have come up with a solution. We've taken several great speculative fiction novels and extracted the important stuff, cutting out all the filler. (You'd be surprised how much filler there is sometimes.) With our ultra-condensed versions of your favorite speculative fiction, you can read entire books -- entire series, even -- in just one minute! You can have your books and read them too! And it costs nothing!"

Ultra-condensed SF&F books by David J. Parker and Samuel Stoddard include Ben Bova's Mars (1992), Robert A. Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land (1961) and H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds (1898).

This might be a sign that there is more literate life on other planets.
