3.0 out of 5 stars For the collectors and Rollins stalkers only, July 30 2000
This review is from: Hot Animal Machine (Audio CD)
Drive By Shooting is just plain funny. Hey Henrietta and Can you Speak This are the jewels of this recording. Men are Pigs, if you haven't heard it, is a classic piece of Henry's spoken-word era. This is history, folks, before the debate circuit, before his appearances on Politically Incorrect, before he was a big movie star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful piece of work, July 27 2000
This review is from: Star Cafe (Paperback)
I was exposed to Ms. Caponegro's work thanks to the wonderful book, "You've Got To Read This!", where writers share stories by other writers that inspired or moved them. The Star Cafe is a dazzling display of human mental interplay and inner mental workings. I greatly enjoyed it.

You've Got to Read This: Contemporary American Writers Introduce Stories That Held Them in Awe
by Ron Hansen
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, great collection, July 27 2000
A beautiful concept, having writers expose us to other writers. There are some jewels in here, if you've already read some of them, be proud of yourself, if not, the sheer randomness may turn you on to something you haven't been turned on to before. I loved "The Star Cafe", and discovered a new writer in the process.

Sudden Fiction International
Sudden Fiction International

Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 12.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for EVERYONE, July 27 2000
This is a great book to buy for someone who doesn't have the patience to read. There are some brilliant works in here, some of them only a few pages long. Leave it in the bathroom or somewhere else you have a captive audience. You just might turn someone on to reading.

Slow Hand
Slow Hand

Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 12.41

5.0 out of 5 stars Male point of view, July 27 2000
This review is from: Slow Hand (Paperback)
My wife purchased this book, and after reading it through, I found it quite stimulating. Some great vignettes are presented, and they are written intelligently. If you like erotica by women, I also recommend Mary Ann Mohanraj...

The Scientist: A Metaphysical Autobiography
The Scientist: A Metaphysical Autobiography
by Lilly
Edition: Paperback
39 used & new from CDN$ 5.85

5.0 out of 5 stars John Lilly for President!, July 26 2000
Boy, would that change things a bit! Dr. Lilly is an authority on some far-our stuff: dolphin communication, isolation tanks, and Ketamine. Mix them all together and what do you get? I don't know, but I wouldn't lend it my car. GREAT BOOK.

Solaris Advanced System Administrator's Guide
by Janice Winsor
Edition: Paperback
16 used & new from CDN$ 4.87

4.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for the Solaris Administrator, July 26 2000

Jaco (Trade)
Jaco (Trade)
by Bill Milkowski
Edition: Paperback
24 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, July 26 2000
This review is from: Jaco (Trade) (Paperback)
Heartbreaking story of the inability of society to cope with mental illness, and of a brilliant musician who suffered and died young because of it. You almost need to be a musician to understand Jaco's contributions, but you don't need to be one to enjoy this book.
