THE ASYLUM WORLD

Paperback library paperback, first printing, December 1969.
Cover artist uncredited.

"TAKE A TRIP TO THE ASYLUM WORLD, A MIND-BLOWING SCIENCE FICTION SATIRE OF OUR TIMES - AND TIMES TO COME! 
Gears ground and the mechanical voice started describing Newyork. "...such noted tourist attractions as the Mailer Obelisk, the Streisand Catafalque, the ever popular Wax Museum of the Performing Arts...charming ethnic dining spots, prices beginning at 70 credits. Recommended are Nedick's Flaming FIlet, Mother's Hot Chicken Soup Eatateria..." But the visitors from Mars couldn't get to Newyork after all - it was closed except to official personnel. 
Just then a trainload of lunatics passed the barrier. Official personnel? 
WHAT ON EARTH WAS WRONG WITH EARTH?"
