Pi-Ka-Net's Avatar

BySean Lawlor Nelson, b.a. in literature

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"PI-KAN-ET'S AVATAR" is a highly unusual and intelligent book from the author of "An Ode to Id," "Weird Voyage Loveward," and "HappenStanzas." The book doesn't confine itself to a single literary form but includes auto-biographical tales, philosophical essays, short stories, and also poems. Nelson is as comfortable with allusions to classical literature as he is with the details of evolutionary biology, the political and scientific questions of our day, or the culture of rural Thailand where he was recently a professor. But other pieces chronicle a life of wild and barbaric passion. Titles include "An Epic of the Everyday," "An Ode to Jimmy Hendrix," "Albert Einstein as Titanic Pandora," "A Galaxy of Biological and Social Contemplations," "The Titanic Captain Kidd," "Blue Cameron's Quest for Blueddhahood," "On Alien Humanoids," "Macbeth, the devil's avatar, and his lovely Pandora," "Mineral Rights Gone Wrong," "An Ode to Thailand," and "Following a Small Monsoon."
