So just what is this book, "The Saga of Punk Walrus"? It's been compared to the writings of Plato ("Hard to understand"), to the teachings of Aesop ("Uses a lot of weird animals"), and to the wisdom of the ancients ("Forgotten and mysterious"). As one reader put it, "It's like Steven King and Douglas Adams sat down one day and wrote a Scooby-Doo Mystery..." That man would have been 35 today.
The story centers around a walrus who become disillusioned with the boring life shared by his fellow walruses, so he leaves his home to become a rock star, only to find out this doesn't solve anything. Along the way he meets Sid Saurus, a time-weary agent, Krakken, a giant squid with a penchant for money and the bitterness that comes with it, Robb, a lobster drummer who is a few shrimp short of a combo platter, and Julie, a small human with powers beyond those of young mortal girls. They team up and spend most of their time arguing and insulting one another while adventures happlessly happen around them.
Among the millions of books in the world, this has been labeled as surely one of them, with more text than a typical driver's manual, but less than the Bible. It is printed on paper, similar to the kind of paper used in renowned best-selling books like "The Great Gatsby", "The Road Less Traveled", and "101 Uses for a Dead Cat." It can be both read aloud to a friend, and silently to one's self. It requires no extra equipment other than what you already have, and in emergencies, can be used to kill small vermin. There is a copy of it in The Library of Congress, and also in the home of the great Neal Whitman. Half of the (bad) illustrations are done by your truly, and the other (good) half, are done by reknown local Goth artist, Suzi. She is an artist whose work has been seen in the Goth/Rave/Fandom scene, as well as magazines like Blue Blood, Gateways, and various tatoo art. She is also a good friend.
The book is divided into three chapters:
