Staff Reviews


A surreal, kaleidoscopic journey through the various subcultures the Internet has fostered, this book could easily be called Fear And Loathing On The Internet had Hunter S. Thompson written it. From the mundane folk who house the souls of dragons and elves to the more bizarre and exotic enclaves that I dare not mention here, Your Next-Door Neighbor Is A Dragon is far more than just a list of weird people and their foibles. Parsons gets down in the trenches and witnesses everything firsthand - he even suits up and goes undercover to a Furry convention. Talk about investigative journalism! Horrifying, hilarious, and sweetly tragic overall, you will never, ever view the Internet the same way again. -- Joey Puente
