Exeunt Alice

Exeunt Alice by ‘Lewis Carroll’ and Kevin Sweeney. Published by Black Rainbow Press, 2008. Paperback, no illustrations.

ISBN: 0955693810

Claiming to be Lewis Carroll’s ‘third and final book’, this is of course, nothing of the kind. The author himself says here:

…this book is “metafictional”, a fiction about a fiction presented as fact. Carroll’s name is attached to it because the conceit is that it is a “discovered” first draft written at the end of his life. It was written as a homage to the Alice books, and as a sort of psychological portrait of Carroll (albeit not a “photo realistic” portrait; sick to death of him being portrayed as a drug fiend or a paedophile, I sought to look at his religious beliefs as the fuel for his creative energy.) I love the Alice books, and having read some brilliant continuations of her adventures, I hoped to write something that would be as much as a tribute as other (more talented) writers before me have written.

alice in virusland

Alice in Virusland by Paul F. Clark. Published by the Society of American Bacteriologists.

1938. 8vo. Offprint from the ‘Journal of Bacteriology’ with five line drawings by W. Allen

Presidential address delivered before the Society of American Bacteriologists at its fortieth annual meeting, San Francisco, August 31, 1938. Alice finds herself in a land of microbes and viruses.

The front cover is plain blue cloth, so I thought I’d stick up the Giardia illustration instead. Isn’t he cute….?

This cost me £22 from abebooks. You can find it on amazon: Alice in virusland or you can read or download the whole thing here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC545356/
