At last, the long-awaited sequel to the underground bestseller, The Book of the SubGenius--an even more radical, more twisted, and more hilarious journey into the wild world of "Bob." With an appendix of epistles and apostles, this is the most intoxicating portrait yet of the Church of the SubGenius and its infamous leader.

Review:

For those who didn't get enough "Bob" out of the original Book of the SubGenius, Revelation X provides more of the same. If anything, this book is more pointed and trenchant than its predecessor. Having watched as hundreds of zinesters, graffiti artists, and Hollywood hipster wanna-bes ripped off their imagery and ideas, the SubGenii have gained even more insight into the wretchedness of the human need to follow rather than create. Encouraging this tendency in others while also making a buck off of it, the SubGenii have produced a well-aimed and painfully funny volume that parodies religion, the cult of cool, the notion of an underground, and the very idea of selling out.

From the Publisher:

Its hour come round at last: the prophesied do-it-yourself end times religion for swinging mutants and terminal abnormals! Eternal Salvation- or triple your money back. Beyond science, reason, and orgasm. Instant instructions for those who follow no master! Scarier than the Old Testament and Scientology put together! More needlessly complicated than the Qabbalah! More vague and ambiguous than the I Ching or astrology! More sheer, brazen hogwash than even the Book of Mormon-- yet infinitely more accurate than Project Bluebook and the Warren Commission Report-- combined! Authorized to blaspheme by the gods themselves! Compatible with all major world religions and most weird fringe cults with a minimum of expensive interfaces or messy surgery.
