I have met very few people I didn't like. There was that one fellow with the long, sharp knife, and that tall woman with the beyond-bad attitude, and of course all those who fight against Foo, but for the most part I find people agreeable.
That is not the case with Terry Graphs. He is despicable, mean, cruel, and--on the occasions when I have had the misfortune of being near him--smelly. So it was with some concern and yet great excitement that I contacted him after seeing what he had posted for sale on eBay. His ad read:
Old dumb book--wife thinks it's worth something. Written by Foo, or a professor, or a sycophant, whoever that is. Found on the Oklahoma prairie not far from where our house was demolished. I personally discovered it while picking up the pieces of the singlewide I still owe on. You tell me what you'll pay for it and we might have a deal.
I flew to Oklahoma and happily bought the book from him for thirty dollars and the silver watch I was wearing. Terry had no idea what he had found or what he was selling. He also had very pungent breath.
I have studied the book for many months now. The best I can figure is that sometime during Clover's stay in Reality it fell from his void, or perhaps he was looking at it on the prairie and foolishly left it behind. Either way, we are lucky. There are many things about Foo and the sycophants that can be gleaned from it. Read it carefully. It is a tremendous glimpse into the mind and life of Leven's faithful friend Clover.
Fate was kind to drop it in my lap. Of course, luckily for all of us, fate seems to favor Foo. [from publisher web site]
