On Demand

You may say that you need a guide to enter into the World of Adventures, and who would argue with you? Well quit playing with Marbles and let Mr. John, heir to The Flower King--part Tarkus, part Squonk, and holder of the One Ring (aka Isildur's Bane)--lead you into the Subterranea of The Great Nothing on a Transatlantic adventure to tell you of Novellas regarding Tales From Topographic Oceans. Expect the unexpected--sometimes It Bites, sometimes there's a Conspiracy, sometimes we go off on a Tangent, and there may even be a Wobbler. Just don't let Jadis ensare you in some Ozric Tentacles while you're trying to escape from liquid hot Magma. From Beyond Man and Time to the year 2112, Mr. John will guide you through the best in epic progressive rock. And if you get hungry, don't be Thick as a Brick--speak up, and if you're lucky, Mr. John will share some Uncle Meat with you.
