Pages one and two of The Book of Srang.
"Mason Riech" -- a misspelled rendition of child actor Mason Reese's name.
"Kintire" -- a reference to Paul McCartney and Wings' song Mull of Kintyre. The friend who drew into being The Book of Srang and I had a fascination for this song. The place-name "Kintyre" is what intrigued us, just the sound of the word -- we knew nothing about the actual site. This reference dates The Book of Srang to late 1977 or sometime in 1978.
"The Human Jukebox" -- a street performer my friend saw on a trip to San Francisco. My friend told me the musician sat in a large cardboard box. Drop in a coin and one would get a brief trumpet tune.
