I got this ex-library softcover from Better World Books, after reading the book via audiobook and loving it. It's set in a world in which a devastating weapon has rendered reality itself unstable, leading to a situation where one's thoughts might cause physical transformations - of an often nightmarish and unpredictable type - and where a new technology that seems to stabilize the reality-warping might lead to normality. Or will it? A quirky protagonist whose happy marriage and companionable co-workers are put at risk, wacky battles in which mimes, ninjas, ducks, and jack-in-the-boxes make appearances (I am not making this up)... Great fun!

[There's a TV Tropes page on the book, with some interesting tidbits - but do beware of spoilers if you haven't read the book yet.]
