''not all of his own novels are easily treated as sf, though all his work tends to exhibit a exuberant opportunism about genre-switching; but some are of explicitly sf interest. Elements of spoof and caricature are laced through the gonzo erotica of A Mouthful of Tongues: Her Totipotent Tropicanalia (2002), but the near future world of the tale is presented with very considerable intensity, as a sexually beleaguered woman is transformed - perhaps as the subject of a biological engineering project - into something like an omnivorous goddess in an Alternate History version of Brazil; and FUZZY DICE (2003) carries its inept protagonist through a variety of Parallel Worlds structured in accordance with various mathematical and cosmological premises: one a world prior to the Big Bang; another a kind of artefactual cellular automaton, and so forth. The end result evokes both Edwin A Abbott and Robert Sheckley, as well as Rudy Rucker, who wrote the introduction'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition)..
