Story rights were bought by Ace but Dicks revisions to bring the ms up to novel-length were rejected & the original story was published in 66. Its 1st novel publication was as half of Ace Double G-602, bound with The Mind Monsters by Howard L. Cory. In 83, an expanded 80,000-word story was published by Berkley.

A new colony, Whales Mouth, is the destination for 40,000,000 colonists. Its a one way trip. The only way to return is by spaceship, an 18-year journey. Rachmael ben Applebaum, whose spaceship business has been ruined by teleportation, decides to make the journey to Whales Mouth in his own ship, Omphalos. Driven by visions that the utopian vision may be false, he chooses to make the trip in case a colonist may decide to return. Powerful figures oppose his journey. Lies, Inc, the expanded version, includes about 100 pages of new material. These chapters focus on a drug trip that Rachmeal has upon being hit by an LSD tipped dart. The new material begins & ends with the phrase Acrid smoke billowed about him.
