The Lovers * Dark Is the Sun * Riders of the Purple Wage
Philip José Farmer looks at government supervision and the economy in Riders of the Purple Wage, winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 1968. The world of Riders of the Purple Wage consists of citizens who all receive a basic income, known as the purple wage, from the government. The plot follows the story of Chib, and his relationship with his great-great-grandfather “Grandpa Winnegan” who hides from the government in his home. Long ago, Grandpa ran a successful company whose workers were highly paid and far more content than the average receiver of the “purple wage.” The novel explores the themes of art, sexuality, and the effect money has on our happiness.
