    1. This is an unusual and thoroughly enjoyable book. Written in the 70s, it is a bit dated in places, but all in all, definitely not a waste of time. Will be looking for more from Spenser.

    2. There's a very specific quality to 70s book, one difficult to sum up precisely. I mean, when it comes to other things from that decade it's easy. Clothesly. Politicsturbulent. Furniturely. Hairlong. Polyesterubiquitous. And yet with books it's tougher. Let's say it's a certain absurdist abstractness of a LSD trip. So normally, like most 70s things this wouldn't work for me, but Spencer did it just right. This is my first actual book by the author, I've watched Waking The Dead and listened to Man [...]

    3. Paranoia, 70s-style, about a rather full-of-himself experimental psychologist who joins a top-secret think tank and finds himself involved in an what seems to be an ongoing program of mind-control experiments being carried out on an unwitting populance. The brief (150+ pages) length and twist ending tend to give it the feel of an extended Twilight Zone episode and some of the period detail has dated it a bit, but otherwise it's a thought-provoking read.

    4. This short story was odd and compelling.I loved the author's use of an insane narrator to tell this story.If you're interested in a quirky, psychological maze, then this book is for you.I give it my highest recommendation.

    5. Clearly a younger Spencer's work. But it shows a couple of my favorite aspects of his writing: brashness, anxiety, really fine crafting, lack of sappiness of any kind. This one would be a fun movie to make.
