Review by Sebastian (John)One of the most stimulating books I've read in many years. Thought-provoking, at times humorous, and well researched, this volume will challenge one of the most deeply (and now strongly argued) precepts of contemporary America...Monogamy! Drawing on studies of the Bonomo as well as modern hunter-gatherer societies, the authors argue that some contemporary societies, and most probably early human societies, were "fiercely" egalitarian...and that this extended to sexual relations. One might say that the "hippy" idea of "free love" predated the delightful 60's by many generations, and that it had (and should still have) an honored role in human history. Highly recommended. I loved the book and would delight in discussing it with folks who read it.
Review by Future ManJodorowski and Moebius are both in top form in this terribly disturbing and reality warping religious science fiction story.
Review by Future ManDo you remember the TV show Rugrats? Since then the creator has been delving into comics and this is her debut. Totally weird, totally amazing!
Review by Future ManNew adaptation of a classic story, turned silent graphic novel by the co-creator of the Persepolis movie adaptation.
Review by Future ManModern mythological origin story exploring concepts of consciousness, spirituality and colonialism.
Review by Future ManOne of the most exciting new writer/artists to break into comics since I started reading. This was his breakout and only a few years later, he is now known for writing some of the best books DC comics is publishing and also writes and draws the awesome post-apocalyptic adventure story Sweet Tooth published by Vertigo.
Review by Future ManBeautiful wordless comics told entirely through woodcut prints. Lynd Ward captures the horror of a post-WWI Germany within his existentially horrific style. Expressionism has never looked so good.
Review by Forest TapleyThis book is incredible! I first read "Desert Solitaire" and so I imagined E.A.'s writing from his nonfiction which was great, but nothing like his imaginative storytelling. "The Monkey Wrench Gang" is an exciting and classic adventure, it's instigating, inspiring, thought-provoking and offers an honest (if idealistic) glimpse into the "radical environmentalist" sabotage culture from the 70s. I particularly enjoy his detailed knowledge and descriptive prose that brings the book to life and educates you in the process. What more can I say? Read it! What a wonderful book!

Review by Jackson TairesI received transmission from the future me who read this book and figured some things out. "This book kicks a$$." I trust me.
Review by David Zhangsome guy took a picture of me that ended up in this book
Review by David ZhangPsychedelic. Funny. a twisted retelling of the creation myths of several ancient civilizations. this is book 1 of a trilogy.
Review by Peter OlmstedI love this idea. It's several essays and they're definitely hit or miss and some of the artists are pretty obscure but some of them are my favorite musicians of all time.
Review by Peter OlmstedPretty dry, and uses a lot of obscure words without explanation. Interesting none the less.
Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats
Review by Peter OlmstedFantastic book. Very detailed explanation of the nourishing and problematic effects of several kinds of food. Super fascinated, has references, but I'm not sure how reliable it is. I read that many of the references are outdated or incestuous. Still like it a lot though.
Review by Peter OlmstedWhimsically swooping high flying adventure. Complete with intense violence, emotions and a quirky sort of humor. Easily one of my favorite books in the Library.
Review by David Zhangan eclectic collection of short stories and art. my favorite story is the one by Kevin Huizenga called "Jeepers Jacobs" about a professor of theology arguing in favor of 'eternal conscious torment' (E.C.T.). a gem of a story.
Review by David ZhangPsychedelic, shamanic, avant garde, brutal.. these words barely scratches the surface of this intriguing series. The Invisibles is what inspired the Matrix - you will see many parallel themes as you read on - but in some ways it's much more psychedelic and mind-blowing.
