tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE
This begins w/ "Ah Pook is Here", is followed by "The Book of Breeething", & ends w/ "Electronic Revolution". I give it a 4 instead of a 5 b/c I like "The Book of Breeething" better by itself. "Illusion is a revolutionary weapon."

I liked the pictures.
Overall this book is a cogent explanation as to why the US grows soooo much corn.

Actually a re-read - I wanted to re-familiarise myself with the Burroughs universe ahead of the imminent arrival, via Amazon, of GHOST OF CHANCE, one of the very few WSB titles I haven't yet read.

Shelves: beat
The 'Ah Pook Is Here' main section of the book I found pretty much unreadable. I mean this is some of the worst writing I have seen from WSB - no wonder he didn't want to publish it himself in this form.
The only saving grace to this volume is the Book of Breeething which has some way cool pictures in it, based on a crude simplification of Egyptian hieroglyphics. Worth checking out the Book of Breeething but save your precious time and don't bother with Ah Pook Is Here.

A bit like riding shotgun in a high voltage demolition derby with someone driving who is going balls out but doesn't really have the concept of shifting gears under control. Plus a hallucinogen.
