Stuff I Read - Circumpolar! by Richard A. Lupoff Review

I feel the need to preface this review by saying that I did not choose this book for myself. It was chosen for me by my partner as the weirdest looking book the bargain section of a bookstore in what has become a tradition of gifting each other the most bizarre book possible.

The thing people forget about classic pulp adventures is that in between the breathtakingly awesome scenes, there was generally a lot of padding and plot-advancement-by-character-stupidity.
