The Fan Man by William Kotzwinkle, Keith Bendis
I've been illustrated and pixelated, man. My roaches have been lovingly depicted in their little boat, rowing through my pad. Yes, man, to celebrate Dorky Day, the illustrated edition of The Fan Man is now available for downloading into your very own precious valuable e-reader. The pictures are amazingly authentic, man, with detail down to roach level. You can see dope-smoking pigeons and there's a beautiful one of the Pope of Junk, with deep religious feelings moving in his heart just before he sells me a worthless yellow school bus.
It's all here, man, your favorite characters and mine. With just a click of your finger, you can have Uncle Skulky in your attic, and Hawkman, man, climbing through the window of your digital device. How wonderful, man, once again you can read Horse Badorties monologues to your friends in the dorm or the nearby jail cell.
"This is music to be played in the head, and only the quickest, least inhibited sight-readers can play it as written, and thus hear head music the likes of which, prior to its publication in 1974, had never been heard. It was and remains important." From Kurt Vonnegut's forward
