London:Dennis Dobson, . Octavo, boards. First edition. "Nowhere is Lafferty's devout Catholicism more evident than in this strange mélange of a novel, which incorporates elements of fantasy and science fiction while being indefinable as either. The book's madcap characters and bizarre settings are typical Lafferty, as is the uncertainty about whether the wild plot, essentially a secret history of the world, amounts to a complete allegory or simply a crazy game -- or perhaps both. No matter, since the result is also typical Lafferty in being highly entertaining and absorbing." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 7-217.
