Synopsis: THE ROSICRUCIAN MYTH IS RETOLD IN THIS EXTRAORDINARY COMIC NOVEL,WHICH DRAWWS ITS INSPIRATION FROM THE OCCULT EPIGRAMS OF MICHAEL MAIER THE 17TH CENTURY ALCHEMIST AND CHIEF APOLGIST FOR THE ROSICRUCIAN MOVEMENT. FOSTER'S ICONOCLASTIC ACCOUNT OF HIS YOUTHFUL HERO'S TRAVELS IN THE EAST, IS AT ONCE A PICARESQUE FICTION,A SCHOLARLY CONTRIBUTION TO THE HISTORY OF SPIRITUAL ALCHEMY,AN ETHIC FOR THE DRUG USER, AND A DEEPLY FELT LAMENT FOR T THE NOW DEPARTED SPIRIT OF THE 1960S. FOSTER BEGAN THIS WORK IN 1973 AND COMPLETED IT IN 1980. HE REGARDS IT AS HIS FINEST NOVEL. CERTAINLY, IN THIS INTELLECTUAL AND IMAGINATIVE GUSTO, IT REPRESENTS A BELATED PEAK IN THE 20TH CENTURY MODERNISTIC COMIC NOVEL.
