    William Maltese's new book CATALYTIC QUOTES 'Some Heard Through a Time Warp ¿ One Music- History- Literary- and Trivia-Buff¿s Pure Conjecture on the Seemingly Sometimes Idiosyncratic Transmigration of the Creative Muse' has just hit the book stands, and it definitely is NOT a book for those looking for the author's usual serving up of erotica, romance, and/or adventurous male and/or female-oriented fiction. -- This book is written entirely for us trivia buffs and puzzle-solvers, anywhere, who are up to the challenge of taking a comprehensive look at a few words that might have been said by one person in history to another, minus all constraints of any historical time-lines, to figure out just what result ¿might¿ have been inspired by the conversation in question. -- Some such quotes are probably no-brainers: -- ARSENIO HALL to ALBERT EINSTEIN: ¿Pat Sajak? He, as an emcee, is square!¿ -- Might not this have inspired Albert Einstein to formulate his now-famous E=mc2 theory of relativity? -- MARCUS ANTONIUS to VINCENT VAN GOGH: ¿Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ear!¿ -- Might not this have inspired Vincent van Gogh to cut off his ear? -- Some such quotes are a tad more difficult: -- ARISTOTLE to MASON WILLIAMS: ¿Excuse, please. Must be something I ate.¿ -- Might not this have inspired Mason Williams to write his instrumental for guitar ¿Classical Gas¿? -- As regards others, you¿re likely going to have to be an expert in your particular field to figure out the clue. -- KATHARINE HEPBURN to ? 'QUESTION MARK' AND THE MYSTERIANS: ¿Oh, yes, The African Queen, and all that location shooting. I remember the on-water shoots, of course, but the bush was especially hazardous. Brambles, don¿t you know. One evening alone, I counted ninety-six tears in one skirt.¿ -- Might this not have inspired ? 'Question Mark' and the Mysterians to sing ¿Ninety-six Tears¿? -- WES CRAVEN to CURTIS MAYFIELD: ¿So, I got to thinking. What if there was this child molester, name of Freddy, see. He¿s killed by irate parents, see. But he comes back to life ¿ sort of ¿ like in every kid¿s nightmares. You know, a Freddy¿s dead but not dead sort of thing.¿ -- While some may very well know that Wes Craven wrote the horror film ¿Freddy¿s Dead: the Final Nightmare¿, how many remember that it was Curtis Mayfield who performed the song, ¿Freddy¿s Dead¿? -- Anyway, Maltese fans, don¿t think this one is going to provide you with the author's usual dollops of hot and heavy sex, although there are some quotes from some porn stars and from some famous madams and from famous whores and hustlers. This book is mainly for those of us who like to sit down for a little bit of mind stretching by way of our fun and games. -- So, if you think you¿re a trivia expert in a lot of areas ¿ well, yes, this 'sometimes laugh-aloud' book is definitely right for you.
