"Snail" is a baroque and fantastic allegory, a pandemonic and sensual satire that revolves around a cosmic crisis - a world struggle between the forces of Pallas Athena and Jehovah Himself. Transformed by the elixir, the narrator, Reich War Minister Commander-in-Chief General Field Marshal Baron Werner Edouard Fritz von Blomberg (aka: Allen Edricson), metamorphoses into a teenage boy, a beautiful woman, and finally into a four-foot snail, as he trips through space and time, from wartime Germany through North Africa to New Orleans and beyond. Along the way he meets the Ayatollah Khomeini and Kilgore Trout (released from the pages of "Breakfast of Champions" by his creator, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.). Publisher's Weekly says "A freewheeling, mind-boggling, emotion shattering fable about the forces of good and evil, love and war, maleness and femaleness, this novel will make readers' flesh crawl, trigger daytime nightmares, and finally, leave them laughing". The Tampa Tribune said it's "Funky....Flaky....Insightful.... It's a dandy."
