I AM LEGEND: BEN MASEL

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?

I AM LEGEND: BEN MASEL

Postby blunt » Sat Oct 13, 2007 12:17 pm

After years of being a gadfly in the soft white flank of The Man, Ben Masel is now a godfly.
He is mentioned in this book, Burning Rainbow Farm: How a Stoner Utopia Went Up in Smoke, about suspicious a pot farm fire and the murder of Michigan's Harvestfest organizers...shadowy conspiracies and apalling abuse of power.
Excellent, fascinating.

How is this book?
I have seen it before, but was unsure about picking it up.
Would someone who is not pro-marijuana be able to enjoy this book?
It looks very good and interesting, but i am still on the fence about this one.
...i do really love a good shadowy conspiracy tho..

WTF?!
Those guys were hanging with the MI Militia. The property was next to a horse ranch owned by Oprah.

They were murdered? Whoa. I'll read this book.

Anything about petty local burglaries in this one? 8)

I'm sorry! I'm paying it back!!
Ahem.
Even if you think a pot party is a Tupperware expo you will probably enjoy this book.
even if you are anti realtively harmless peace-inducing creativity enhancing free range organic sustenance.
There's something there for everyone:
1) Dismay and self-righteous horror at goose-stepping hillbilly law enforcement.
2) Happiness and self-righteous pleasure at the bad guys getting what they deserve.
It's also what I always enjoy in a quick compelling read: it's quick and compelling.
