Ah Pook Is Here was originally planned as a picture book modeled on the surviving Mayan codices. Malcolm McNeill was to do the illustrations and I was to provide the text. Over the years of our collaboration there were a number of changes in the text, and Malcolm McNeill produced more than a hundred pages of artwork. However, owing partly to the expense of full color reproduction, and because the book falls into neither the category of the conventional illustrated book, nor that of a comix publication, there have been difficulties with the arrangements for the complete work — which calls for about a hundred pages of artwork with text (thirty in full color) and about fifty pages of text alone.
Includes The Book of Breeething (1974) and The Electronic Revolution (1971).
