This is the sequel to the hilarious BIMBOS OF THE DEATH SUN (1988). McCrumb is a master of Southern culture and humor. A group of science fiction fans called the Lanthanides, who buried a time capsule in the 1950s, reconvenes in 2001 to unearth it. Since old habits and animosities never die, the most unpopular guy is killed early on, and the suspects are legion. Narrator Phimister does a grand job presenting Southern accents and characters, as well as Hollywood types and the vultures of the publishing industry. Since the suspect list is long, Phimister gets to demonstrate her considerable skills. She keeps things humming until the last minute when McCrumb "reveals all." S.G.B.
