Just as I've basically lumped the 1st 28 Goulart bks that I've read together & referred all reviews to my one review of "Wildsmith", I read my 29th Goulart & it doesn't have a single bit of humorously dysfunctional technology in it - thusly making it significantly different from what I remember of the others I've read. Anyway, this one's basically a parody of hack SF serial writing in the 1940s & did have the Goulart trademark goofiness that I like & was pulp-readable in a successfully fluid way, etc, etc.. There's also a subplot of the 2 Hollywood script writers constantly referencing wch Hollywood figures are gay - wch seems more of a parody of the 1940s bourgeois than homophobic but it wd probably wear pretty thin to most people I know pretty quickly. Fortunately, that falls to the wayside eventually.
