This is a writer indulging himself. If you have a taste for the same indulgences, you may get a kick out of it.
Most I've met who did not enjoy this book were expecting it to be an actual sequel, along the lines of "The Further Adventures of Shandon Silverlock." Don't be fooled, this is NOT that book. (Although Golias does make a brief appearance.) If you can make it past that, and you enjoyed SIlverlock, you'll probably enjoy this one, too.
George Puttenham is the book's hapless hero, a bored professor of Economic Geography, who is swept out of his dull routine by the godess Venus (the fire-eating dame of the title, AKA Ininni, Ishtar, Aphrodite, Astarte, etc.), and assigned the task of making a survey of the Road - a highway that is none other than the continuum of all of literary history. On that Road, he travels from ancient Sumer to Homeric Troy, from deep in the Goof Stream of the Ocean to the star Aldbaran and the planet Mercury. Along the way, he encounters most of the great writers and poets of history, (also cut loose from their respective times), mostly in bars, and they all get blotto and sling about ribald tales.Read more ›
SILVERLOCK had the reader bumping into literary characters, this book has you bumping into authors. The protagonist is on a journey to becoming a poet, and I had a rough time with about the first third of the book, but it picked up.

I first read this forty years ago at university. An exuberant energetic story that was not as good as Silverlock but still worth readingPublished on August 16, 2013 by firstname.lastname@example.org
