San Francisco. The very name may bring to mind anything from Sam Spade dodging bullets to drug experimentation at Fillmore West to the first openly gay community in the Castro district. Ever since the gold rush, the city has been a haven for the unusual and the well-before-their-time, but there's no better time than now to see the downright bizarre.

If you want to see the Golden Gate Bridge and eat Ghirardelli chocolates, there are many fine books that will hold your hand through the process. But if you'd rather:

-Visit the birthplace of LSD
-Take home a toilet guitar
-Worship at the church of John Coltrane
-Have a pint and a nosh at O'Greenberg's
-Photograph the attractive Manson family home
-Ride with the Hell's Angels
-Take a Black Panther legacy tour, or
-Visit the nation's only fully restored nuclear missile site,

then San Francisco Bizarro is the book for you. With addresses, hours, and phone numbers, you'll be fully equipped for the most bizarre visit ever. Because America doesn't get any freakier than this.
