THE PLAIN MAN
This is a worthy successor to the first Max August books. Steve Englehart has create a series of rip-roaring, page turning, pulp tomes that function as teaching tools about the current state of incipient fascism in American politics and the uses of the imagination and the occult therein.Think “Carolyn Casey meets Jeff Sharlet”. Think “J.K. Rowling meets Ian Flemming”. What if the hippy radicals really COULD have levitated the Pentagon during the 1968 ritual exorcism, and the Pentagon fought back with warlocks of their own? This is radical, impassioned, intelligent, fun stuff. Become an Alchemist! Read Max August!
