Another book that I want
Here's a book I want, published in England but available in the U.S. as an import: The Odditorium: The tricksters, eccentrics, deviants and inventors whose obsessions changed the world, edited by David Bramwell and Jo Keeling. From the publisher: "The Odditorium is a celebration of history's lesser known creative mavericks; the tricksters, subversives and pioneers whose passion and obsession proved there are no limits or rules when it comes to human potential."
One of our British correspondents, Nick Helseg-Larsen, just bought a copy. He writes, "One of the contributors is John Higgs and there is a 4 page piece on Bob as well as others such as Leary, Crowley, Bucky, Watts, and Emperor Norton."
