Dismayed by a basement-apartment existence supported by two low-paying radio jobs, twenty-something workaholic Nicki Rodriguez experiences a dramatic change in outlook when fate transports her to an even lousier place-a distorted world inhabited mostly by canine-humaids trapped in a dimension somewhere between new Jersey and outer space. Nicki searches desperately for her pilfered portfolio containing ten thousand hard-earned dollars, praying that her life-threatening dimension burn will heal, so she can try to return to regular new Jersey and her old life. All the while, Perswayssick County's greedy, tail-wagging leader, self-described business maggot Dr. B. Z. Z. Gneeecey, is selling out Perswayssick County to a mob of waxy-faced gangster-style aliens. and he's convinced them that Nicki has something they need!
