Read the books for the afterwords. The book is amusing, but slight. Chabon's meditations in the afterwords on the nature of adventure, identity, and the writing process are worth the price of admission. (though his protests as "I'm not a genre fiction writer, no really" are amusingly flimsy)

Additionally this is a book which would be greatly enhanced by being a hyperlinked document, backed by a rich wikipedia-esque data store. Rather then suffer I think the option to dig deeper into these cultures and places, real and imagined, would have enhanced the reading experience.
