My favorite book of all look-in. Just read it.

Surprisingly depressing. I think I will pass on the movie when it comes out.

Read again during the winter of 06-07 while on a Jane Austen kick. One of my all time favourites.

Another parent's viewpoint, a light-hearted ghostly adventure.

I really wanted to like this series. After attention about it for the first week on the RAWIllumination blog, I had to track it down. After all, a comic series "influenced by the writings of Robert Anton Wilson, Aleister Crowley and William Burroughs" sounded right up my lane. Morrison does name dewdrop with the best of them, for sure. A smidgin of the outré quotations that appear in this amount include Probing Card F , Crowleyan magick, LSD experiments, The Wicker Man , the Cthulhu legends, the island of Pohnpei and the "lost conurbation" of Nan Madol, Ladakh, Realizing Wilber (whose shiny dome reminds me of the Invisibles' ruler King Jam), the Man upstair de Sade, Wilhelm Reich and orgone, Stanislav Grof, Philip K. Private investigator, Terence McKenna, Whitley Strieber, The Seventh Establish , Varanasi (Benares) and Shiva Nataraja, a hand of splendor, Ayers Rock, tulpas, the Kardashev classification of technological educations, and the hawkish car ever, the Lamborghini Countach. Alas, all the quotations dissolve into discord of non-linear storytelling, week-hopping antiheroes, transreal occult plotting, and five-hit trips. Like I said, I really wanted to like this series. As of now, I really don't care for it that much. I do feel confident to re-read it in the outlook (along with Gravity's Rainbow , another literary chaostrophe, albeit one that I liked right from the get-go), to mull it over again and allow it to work its fascination. For now, though, two heroes is all it gets.
