"Elmer Weishaupt Gantry (his friends call him Professor Ganty), Proto-Occultist and Meta-Mystic, traveled widely in spawning this Book. Delving deeply into the Ancient Archives of the British Museum Library for several hours, he then Hover crafted to France where he solved the Prehistoric Riddle of the Eiffel Tower."
A satire of the mid-twentieth century guru movement. Gantry was a pseudonym used by Livergood.
