Ah Pook is Here and Other Texts None
Actually a re read I wanted to re familiarise myself with the Burroughs universe ahead of the imminent arrival, via , of GHOST OF CHANCE, one of the very few WSB titles I haven t yet read.
This begins w Ah Pook is Here , is followed by The Book of Breeething , ends w Electronic Revolution I give it a 4 instead of a 5 b c I like The Book of Breeething better by itself Illusion is a revolutionary weapon.

The Ah Pook Is Here main section of the book I found pretty much unreadable I mean this is some of the worst writing I have seen from WSB no wonder he didn t want to publish it himself in this form.The only saving grace to this volume is the Book of Breeething which has some way cool pictures in it, based on a crude simplification of Egyptian hieroglyphics Worth checking out the Book of Breeething but save your precious time and don t bother with Ah Pook Is Here.
