While this, the second volume of the Cosmic Trigger series, continues along the path set by the original "Cosmic Trigger I", it also stands solidly on its own. Any reader with an open mind and a sense of humour cannot help but be entertained and enlightened while following Wilson's explorations into such subjects as the future of cyberspace; the peculiarities of Irish jurisprudence; links among the Mafia, the CIA and the Catholic Church; anal-eroticism in The White House; the Dog Castrator of Palm Springs; and many more observations from his infinitely fertile brain.
