We go from Texas to Oakland and back to Texas and get ready for the long trip to outer space! (In imagination, if the prophecy is written in the mind of the believer!) These people are very mysterious and kind and pitiful. Oakland is the place of horses in trees, and lake Merritt being taken up into the sky and the tunnel to Alameda flooding and the Oakland Auditorium being the place of strange happenings under a sand box, or is that the other books? Why is Lizsie Bell in the story anyway, or is it the other story? She went to Venus and ruined the whole planet, who is the bdelloids? Or who are they? These characters are all great fighters and do many wonderful things for the reader who had the imagination of the writer, he is a character too. Look into the heart of the Oakland people and you will see the reflection of many people you have seen in down town Oakland at one time or another. The victims of the violence, mothers and children and the offenders. Did a man or men really make a million dollars insuring those people already dead? So what is that under your feet? A bookworm or what are you anyway? Who is Lizzie Bell anyway? Who are the (you) bdelloids in you?
