Synopsis

Here is Venus, Inc., a two-in-one volume containing the 1952 classic, The Space Merchants by Frederick Pohl and C. M. Kornbluth, and The Merchants' War, Pohl's brilliant new sequel to the previous masterpiece - a blistering satirical vision of Earth's foreseeable future, when advertising has gone mad, and society is divided into those who sell and the lowly consumers who buy . . and buy . . .and buy. It is a civilization in which no one eats natural foods, artificially cultivated meat cells provide all protein, soft drinks are laced with "harmless" addictives to ensure product loyalty - and onle the Conservationist rebels, or Consies, battle the status quo, waging an underground war against the powerful, exploitative advertising agencies that run the world.
