"In this hypertext novel Bobby Rabyd [Robert Arellano] explores the pop-cultural shadow-side of 1969—from the moon landing to the Manson murders, from a Vietnam veteran's PTSD to a rock star's idolatry, from the love-in at Woodstock to the murder at Altamont—by relating intermixed stories and emphasizing graphics and music."—ELMCIP Knowledge Base
