Book Description

Colonel Rohde's Gazette, incorporating The Swinehurst Telegram - Companion;
informing citizens of the Cyberlag Archipelago against their will since 1912.
Except for persons associated with the National Geographic Society, all are welcome at Swinehurst!
International tea magnate and Gazette publisher Col. A.C.E. "Gordon" Rohde and his sister,the universally famous scientist Athena Rohde Flutterblast, extend their hospitality to travellers and shipwrecked adventurers worldwide and visitors from outer space, and Col. Rohde asks only that all guests ignore the depredations and insolence of his addle-pated and worthless nephew Hardy "Bingo" Flutterblast.
Yeti astrobiologist and psychic Dr. Milton Ku advises guests not to take any notice of Bingo, or of the aliens in the swamp.
Bingo warns guests not to believe any grievances the various celebrated musicians, now walking abroad at Swinehurst in ghostly form, "might go on about,crybabies that they are, all no doubt being egged on by the knowall Milton Ku."
