an often fun combo of psychedelia, over the top pulp action, and imaginative bizarro landscapes. well it was written by one of those underground musician types, what do you expect? snarky and sorta sleazy characters abound. unfortunately, after a while, the jokiness just got to me and i grew oh so bored. more enjoyable in retrospect than in actuality. still, an unusual book and definitely a part of its time - the glorious 70s!
