Today on Radio West: The Book Bizarre, "Tuesday, we're offering a list of bizarre books for this most foolish of holidays. From fake works like the book on silence - consisting of entirely blank pages - to serious tomes with titles like "Inquiry into the Medicinal Value of the Excreta of Reptiles," our team of local booksellers has seen it all."
I throughly enjoyed this episode, I found myself madly scribbling down titles authors and publishers, and reminiscing some I have read (Geek Love by Katherine Dunn) Then someone mentioned the publisher Harlin Quist and the children's books they published in the 70's. When they said "Millicent the Monster" it was like I suddenly stepped back in time. I have had pictures from this book in my head all my life but have never been able to put any words or a title to it. It was like all the stars lined up- finally putting it all together. I just found a copy online that will arrive on my doorstep in a few days. I sure I will embarrass my kids when I blubber through the first reading and a few more after that.

Now if I could just find some more info on Iris the Virus- a kids TV show from back in the day. Anyone recall it?
