Hyperzotica is a collection of linked stories written after the fashion of a contemporary television serial. Each story is an episode featuring Keith and Phyllis Benson, much as each episode of As Time Goes By centers around Lionel and Jean Hardcastle. Keith is a professor specializing in ecological economics, and Phyllis is an architect who writes wildly successful bondage romances under a pseudonym. They live in the fictional city of New Geneva, Oregon, which greatly resembles the actual city of Eugene. The book focuses on themes of married love and biospheric sustainability.
