Ishmael was just the first course, however. The rest of the meal was still to come — in Providence, The Story of B, My Ishmael, and Beyond Civilization. But, though I didn't stop with Ishmael, most of my readers did. Very few of them went on to sample any of the later courses.
That's why I decided to put this book together. It's a collection of appetizers, generous samples of all the books that followed Ishmael — and of the books that came BEFORE Ishmael. Reading here, you'll see that in earlier writings — Tales of Adam and The Book of the Damned — I accomplished some things that I never managed to surpass in any of the later books (including Ishmael).
