again and blow your mind someThe Unicorn Girl Book Two of the Greenwich Village Trilogy, bookended by Book One Chester Anderson s The Butterfly Kid and Book Three T A Waters The Probability Pad For those reader who might not be familiar with Chester s The Butterfly Kid, we have none other than Chester who wrote himself and Michael Kurland into the novel as leaders of a gaggle of horny hippies who save the world from giant blue alien lobsters by the use of psychedelics and mass hallucination Ah, acid to the rescue Not exactly Theodore Dreiser or Sinclair Lewis but it makes for one funky, fun story Turning to The Unicorn Girl here s the setup A year following those phenomenal Greenwich Village butterfly events, narrator Michael Kurland is sitting at a table in the San Francisco Bay Area listening to Chester the Barefoot Anderson on stage playing his electric harpsichord with his new rock group when he spots her just inside the doorway THE GIRL OF HIS DREAMS Feeling like the knight in shinning armor from his boyhood days, Michael walks up to the dark haired beauty and introduces himself to which, the fair damsel in distress asks Michael if he would help find her unicorn Cut to the parking lot outside where Michael aka Michael the Teddybear and his fair damsel Sylvia are joined by first Chester the Barefoot and then by a tall, slender knockout by the name of Dorothy and then finally by Ronald the centaur no kidding, a real centaur and Giganto the cyclops dido a real cyclops Turns out these two beauties and two physical oddballs are from the circus and they are all looking for their lost unicorn Adolphus Two search parties are formed Ronald and Giganto gallop off in one direction and Michael, Chester, Sylvia and Dorothy dawdle off in the other No sooner does the quartet dawdle down the lane then Michael hears a weird meep meep along with spotting a blinking red light coming from what looks like one of those B movie flying saucers Than all of a sudden, as if from out of nowhere, there s an earthquakelike shaking BLIP and our four unicorn hunters are in a different space time continuum big word I remember from high school physics class If Dorothy had a little doggie with her, she might have said the Bay Area version of Toto, I ve a feeling we re not in Kansas any So, Michael and the trio are in a post BLIP land next to a yellow brick road where all sorts of In the Hall of the Mountain King happenings start to happen And this isn t the only BLIP the story features fourBLIP, BLIP, BLIP, BLIP sprinkled throughout, BLIP ing off at the hippest moments Three soundtracks kept spinning in my mind s ear while reading Love the One You re With, Puff, the Magic Dragon, and, of course, Here Comes the Sun Dig it, baby Plot Did I hear you say you wanted some words on plot Impossible Noon plot Rather, let me share a few of my favorite HI points, if you know what I mean Here they are Michael, Chester, Sylvia and Dorothy are ridding in a horse drawn carriage with a Victorian lady and gentleman top hat, mustache, mutton chops, the whole get up After ridding for a couple of hours with this prim and proper Vic couple, out in a grassy field, six buck naked couples frolic and romp in joyful abandon, laughing, squealing, running and tickling and hugging each other Michael enjoys the sight but then it strikes him the Victorian couple obviously fail to see the least itty bitty bit of all that gleaming gorgeous flesh Parallel universes, maybe Turns out, nakedness means invisible to the denizens of this world they ve entered Comes in handy when Teddybear, Sylvia, Dorothy and the Barefoot One are chased through town by the Victorian townsfolk Hey, as readers we get to picture Michael, Chester and those two curvaceous lovelies strip down to their birthday suits Walking along on a path in the woods, our four hippie adventurers oh, yes, Sylvia and Dorothy have learned to toke with the best of them are confronted by a gang of Spanish Conquistadors armed with swords and lances Oh, no Those brutes in armor want at the two beautiful ladies A fight ensues And who proves to be the most skilled warriors Dorothy and Sylvia Maybe those lovelies acquired their martial arts skills from the circus, but whatever it was, they are a sight to behold When one Conquistador brings his sword up to defend himself, like a combination of lightning flash and jaguar leap, Sylvia swings into action, snapping her leg and fists out in rapid succession, hitting his belly, chest and finally his head with such force it instantly brakes his neck More swirls, stabs and kicks too fast to count and those conquering Conquistadors are turned into corpses soon to be carrion for the turkey vultures I hear Santana s Soul Sacrifice thumping away as background music Toward the end of their adventures, after the gang catches up with Tom aka T A Waters, author of The Probability Pad, we read one of Michael the Teddybear s last reflections The four days went fast I don t remember much except getting yelled at a lot and not sleeping When it was over, we had learned certain spells and methods that would be of most use to us How to disappear How to blip from one place to another excuse the word blip How to create and use a simulacrum if we got the chance Things like that Sylvia turned out to be the most apt pupil, Tom next, Dorothy next, then Chester and me What I want to know is Why isn t this classic sixties novel reprinted so as to be madeavailable Is anybody in the publishing world listening

    60 s F SF Psychedelia at its best, this book is sorta a part of a sorta trilogy The Butterfly Kid by Chester Anderson starts the fun, The Unicorn Girl comes next, and The Probability Pad by T A Waters finishes it.Anderson s book in particular is a brilliant romp, with the long Victorian sentence game being outrageously funny Unfortunately prices are steep for Anderson s and Water s books 60 s FSF Psychedelia at its best, this book is sorta a part of a sorta trilogy The Butterfly Kid by Chester Anderson starts the fun, The Unicorn Girl comes next, and The Probability Pad by T A Waters finishes it.Anderson s book in particular is a brilliant romp, with the long Victorian sentence game being outrageously funny Unfortunately prices are steep for Anderson s and Water s books

    I first read this book when I was 15 and have reread it approximately every ten years since then It s basically one of my favourite things in the whole world Replete with dialogue and situations that live forever in the imagination, if you read it when you are young, I suspect it will never leave you.

    I have loved this book for so longI just discovered the Unicorn Girl all over again Lines from it have been in my head for so many decades And now, now, I remember where they come from Still, so wonderfully whimsical.


  6. Kevin Kevin says:

    I first read this decades ago when it came out in paperback A trilogy by three authors, and three decent books Now this one is available as an e book And grandly worth re reading, as your case may be.Strongly recommended.

    This rather delightful book was first published in 1969, and you can tell.It stars the author, his friends, and others, and one of its various parts is set in the world of Lord Darcy a fictional world created by Randall Garrett, another friend of Kurland s.It s technically science fiction although it feelslike fantasy, and consists of a madcap adventure story in which the characters who have their own touches of eccentricity are pulled from one world to another by something outside thei This rather delightful book was first published in 1969, and you can tell.It stars the author, his friends, and others, and one of its various parts is set in the world of Lord Darcy a fictional world created by Randall Garrett, another friend of Kurland s.It s technically science fiction although it feelslike fantasy, and consists of a madcap adventure story in which the characters who have their own touches of eccentricity are pulled from one world to another by something outside their control.It s not so much a novel as a magical mystery tour, but it s amusing and good fun and I m fond of it It does actually have a plot of sorts, and a genuine ending.Being a fan of Lord Darcy, I have a few quibbles about that part of the book.1 The representatives of the Angevin Empire should have been speaking Anglo French, a language that evolved differently from our English over the course of centuries, so there should have been considerable communication problems with Americans from our world But, OK, that would have been no fun and would have slowed down the story.2 Sir Thomas Leseaux is well documented as having no Talent, so he shouldn t be capable of doing magic He should have summoned a sorcerer to do it for him, which would have been easy enough Kurland later wrote a couple of full blown Lord Darcy novels himself, by which time he d studied the scenario better and didn t make that kind of mistake.3 Sir Thomas s little demonstration of magic seems oddly like something out of Harry Potter, although of course the Potter books were written much later In the Lord Darcy stories, the words of spells are never quoted.But these are just minor quibbles Overall, this is a nice book about nice people, and I find it both entertaining and comforting The sort of book I can read to cheer me up when I m feeling low Thank you, Michael Kurland

    This book was a lot funnier when I was fourteen I admit that It was also funnier the first time I read it as compared to when I already knew what was coming I admit that, too But hey, having read it for the first time in about 1976, it s amazing how much of the dialogue and storyline remained easily accessible in my memory nearly 40 years later obviously it made an impression.The plot is sketchy, but then so is the save the world plot of any action film, from Godzilla to Bond to the lat This book was a lot funnier when I was fourteen I admit that It was also funnier the first time I read it as compared to when I already knew what was coming I admit that, too But hey, having read it for the first time in about 1976, it s amazing how much of the dialogue and storyline remained easily accessible in my memory nearly 40 years later obviously it made an impression.The plot is sketchy, but then so is the save the world plot of any action film, from Godzilla to Bond to the latest blockbuster I have to say, though, that Kurland obviously got tired of writing about halfway through The first half is much funnier, with the dialogue between Chester and Michael, or Tom and Michael, or any of the girls and Michael After they actually get to the Angevin Empire and start to do instead of talk, things start to drag just a bit, as if he lost direction A lot of the plot threads like the Tolkienite hippy tribe, or the dragonlady teaching school get started and just peter out Well, a blip in time saves ninenine pages of transitional writing, I guess And there really isn t much of an end After all that buildup just like a Bond film everybody just seems to turn off the lights and go home.I ve always wondered if Kurland and Anderson might possibly be the same person IRL Having never been able to find The Probability Pad by Tom Waters or whoever , the jury s still out on that one

    Sequel to The Butterfly Kid Not as good as The Butterfly Kid, felt like he tried too hard to get Chester into character and tried too hard overall, but really did like the concept.
