Item description for Mockymen by Ian Watson...

This wonderfully weird tale uncovers the secrets of the "mockymen," aliens who have inhabited drug-addled humans' bodies. A young British couple who make jigsaw puzzles are hired for an outlandish job in a park by an elderly Norwegian man. Toward the end of the Second World War, a blood sacrifice was carried out in this park by Nazis trying to create an occult cordon around Norway, and the aging Norwegian hopes to access the power residing in the park to achieve reincarnation for himself. The Hardship Years intervene, when climate change, ecological collapse, and global economic crises derail human civilization, but in 2010 salvation arrives in the shape of an alien expedition promising new technologies. As the aliens begin to inhabit the bodies of humans strung out on the drug Bliss, a young Blisshead named Jamie recalls his prior life as a Norwegian, and the aliens' true motives are revealed. This wild, absurd, and far-out tale reveals a keen intelligence at work and at play.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mockymen?

Familiar motifs, original storytelling  Apr 16, 2004
Watson's recent novel is on the surface a bit more conventional sf story than his classic novels such as THE EMBEDDING and MIRACLE VISITORS. However, it is great fun and encompasses some adventurous story telling, involving Nazi plots, zombified drugged-out "Blissheads," and a dangerous quest to save Earth from evil aliens. This is done in the context of the author's usual incisive social analysis and realistic characterizations. What kind of salvation would it be, as in this book, if we depended upon an extraterrestrial race to come in and solve all our global political and ecological problems for us?
One woman's determination to find the shocking truth  Nov 15, 2003
Mockymen is a science fiction saga by Ian Watson that stretches from the roots of Nazi atrocities to alien visitation in the year 2010, and which seems to promote cooperation between species on the surface -- yet has more sinister implications, such as the introduction of the drug Bliss (a chemical that renders a tiny percentage of its users stupefied zombies that the aliens can use as puppet bodies). It's one woman's determination to find the shocking truth behind the aliens that leads to an odyssey of murder and intrigue in this involving, original, and very highly recommended science fiction thriller.
