Unbridled creativity, cleverness, off-beat puns, chunks of knowledge, and leaps into the murk of finger-popping neurons can lead you to write a book like this. The problem: Farmer had the judgement of a 14 yr old adoles. This anthology of fictional authors perpetrated by Farmer includes:
1-Vonnegut's Kilgore Trout meeting lockerroom humor: vulgar, crude, sexual (not erotic- sentient cat humanoid perpetually in estrus, flying male fart bags, and vaginally docking cow-pyramids)--not Vonnegutian in thought, word, or deed. or compassion.But with a larger vocabulary.
2-Tarzan as written by William S Burroughs in his Moroccan opium hideaway, not by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
3-You got the idea. ( )
