THE NEON MOTORCYCLE

Personally we'd be happy to leave such ROARRRing frenzy to TV, but we must admit that Rockwell and Horen pack as much zap into Sam's wild ride on a runaway Harley as hard covers can be expected to contain. If this sort of thing turns you on, you can really see that neon flashing in an early ""picture of Sam's stomach,"" a dayglo rainbow of words -- ""turning green/ upside down/ lunch/ trembling miserably/ despair rising/ queasy"" -- alternating with wheels, gears and pipe fittings in a highly agitated intestinal system. Rockwell slips in a few nice phrases (we like ""flamboyant with pigeons"") between the THWONKs and the SPRONGs, and Horen's vibrating bike in melting juke box colors, mottled for an irridescent effect, matches up to its description as an ""exploding bandstand.
