Ever wondered what it would be like to be famous? To receive bags of letters from adoring fans? The entertainers who live in the public eye know it's a unique existence filled with adoration, disdain and the unending need to balance work and fame.
"More Letters to Rollins" by R.K. Overton is a collection of "fan mail" and art allegedly sent to singer/actor/author Henry Rollins. It offers a humorous look at the lives of celeb-stalkers, whackos, philosophers and various Rollinsonians who want to reach out and connect with the former Black Flag frontman. Overton compiled this sequel to the popular book, "Letters to Rollins," to give readers even more bizarre and earnest commentary from the masses.
Overton notes in the introduction that he's culled these gems from the mailbag to answer the loaded question, "What's Henry really like?" What makes this book so fun to read is the way it answers that question with each entry serving as a humorous character sketch of the fan, and an homage to Rollins's inspiring nature.
The fact that Rollins printed this book through his 2.13.61 publishing house shows a wry intelligence that could easily be masked by the imposing facade of fame, muscles and tattoos. Clearly this is someone who knows how to laugh at himself and the world around him.

Absolutely hilarious. The wild assortment of letters, notes, etc. form a bizarre yet cohesive narrative involving several weird characters with poor Mr Rollins at the center, surrounded by lunatics.

There are at least two of these books, this is the second one. It can definitely stand on it's own as a story -- you don't have to read Letters to Rollins to enjoy this one. I think this one's a bit funnier, actually, but that's just me.

This is a really funny book poking fun at the life of punk poet Henry Rollins. Some of the people from the first book are back again along with a new group of malcontents jumping Henry through a new set of hoops, ultimately dipping into parallel worlds of foreign exchange students, Haiku Contests, Lilith Fair, and covert time travel experiments. Highly entertaining and highly recommended.

R.K. is back again, and he brought his crew of messed up, weirded out misfits with him. In it, we find people writing about theories which aren't based in reality, or even this planet. One might wonder about Overton, but hey, we've all got to make a living *L*. In summary, buy this book, pretend you're Hank, and laugh your head off. Highly recommended.

What a waste of my time. I actually threw this book away. I only fished it out of the garbage when I found I could get my money back. The letters aren't real, they aren't even BASED on real letters. Overton ISN'T funny and he's playing off a subject that Mr. Rollins has repeatedly talked about in a negative context - getting badgered by idiotic fans who feel he owes them something. Try Rollins' actual books if you want a good read. "Letters..." is overdone, uncreative, and basically a cheap, weasely way to make money. Rot in H-E-double Q, Overton. You're a hack.
