KIRKUS REVIEW

Hapgood is a teacher at Keene State College in New Hampshire; Einstein, one of the spirit voices here, did an introduction for one of his more scholarly works; and this is discarnate stush on the order of the Cayce readings or the Seth material in which some sixty presences (including Hapgood's dog Eloise) speak through Elwood Babbitt, a trance medium. Hapgood's own introduction here about T and L fields and Peter Hurkos and talked-to plants and Kirlian photography couldn't he more disoriented. But the recorded sessions -- taking place over about six years -- feature many, many famous people: JFK and Socrates and Queen Elizabeth (she discusses Viet Nam). Elwood Babbitt writes poetry and William Wordsworth can be heard commenting, ""Why don't he get going?"" while Bishop Pike fractiously says, ""I wish I could find my glasses"" and Mark Twain's ""What is wrong with four-letter words?"" is the most apposite comment of all.
