THING STREET ASYLUM, the third volume of PIONEERS OF ALIENATION (a trilogy) illustrates Community Mental Health in Emile Durkheim House, a psychome (group home for mentally ill people) maintained by Charles Waldorf Handy and another of Johnny's landlords, Citizen Hearse. They could be twins. Deane is a permanent part of Johnny's delusional fabric, as he appears in various guises: a neighbor, a housemate, a correspondent (penpal), an executive, and finally an airplane pilot. In reality(?) he's dead. This book concludeds with the apotheosis of C.K. Clarke as the tutelary HEAD of the new, TRANSFORMED, Virtual Asylum.

RUDE CIVIL SERVANTS, the second volume of PIONEERS OF ALIENATION (a trilogy) involves the West in Johnny?s oscillations. It moves among Hogtown, Lethe Bridge, and Montage, as Johnny flits back and forth across the Da-minion. This piece introduces the Asylum proper: its walls, bad plumbing, and mad doctors (especially Joseph Workman). It features portions of the never-completed history of psychiatric extinction, including an interview with Max the Butcher. It narrates Johnny?s faltering academic career, his growing insanity, his ultimate betrayal to the Asylum authorities by Porko and Max.

The first part of a satirical mock-epic, SHOPPING ON THE TITANIC begins with Johnny's antecedents, including William Midas, a public-spirited entrepreneur bringing hydro-electricity to the nation, in "Three Generations Enough" (the quote is from O.W. Holmes). This section presents scenes from the courtship and married life of Johnny's parents, narrates Johnny's early life in the Maypole City, his attempts to escape it, his fleeing to Hogtown, his early acquaintance with the Mental Illness Establishment in Charles Waldorf Handy's rooming house, his first encounter with Max the Butcher, his employment in the monumental Hotel, etc. "Shopping on the Titanic," is an interlude narrating Johnny's early business career in a Hogtown bank. The action occurs literally in the shadow of the Hotel, in the banks and warrens beneath them, in the Hotel itself, and on the harbor-front. The bank and the hotel provide a metaphor for monumental ruin, anticipating the Asylum. Shopping introduces the junk theme, which is related to the disaster theme. Johnny misses the boat this time, the Sam McFee not the Titanic, which he's already (metaphorically) on. "Recollections of Deane" moves back and forth between Montage (Montreal) and Hogtown (Toronto). It resumes Johnny's essentially cerebral relationship with the eponymous Deane. It describes the start of Johnny's academic career at Montage U, with Rube Goldberg. It concludes with another architectural metaphor, Windsor Station.

SHOPPING THE TITANIC, the first volume of a trilogy, is itself comprised of three autonomous but related works. ?Three Generations Enough" begins with Johnny's ancestor, William Midas, a public-spirited entrepreneur, bringing hydro-electricity to the nation. The quote is from O.W. Holmes. It originally referred to eugenics and the Snopes family (three generations of idiots, etc.). This section presents scenes from the courtship and married life of Johnny's antecedents, narrates Johnny's early life in The Maypole City, his attempts to escape it, his fleeing to Hogtown, his early acquaintance with the Mental Illness Establishment in Charles Waldorf Handy's rooming house, his first encounter with Max the Butcher, his employment in the monumental Hotel, etc. Among others (Max the Butcher, Vixen Foxy Weasel-Theatre, etc.) Johnny meets Deane and Porko, the antipodes of his emotional inner life. "Shopping the Titanic," an interlude, desribes Johnny?s early business career in a Hogtown bank. The action occurs literally in the shadow of the Hotel, in the banks and warrens beneath them, in the Hotel itself, and on the harbor-front. The bank and the hotel provide a metaphor for monumental ruin, anticipating the Asylum. Shopping introduces the junk theme, which is related to the disaster theme. It?s also very sexual. Johnny misses the boat this time, the Sam McFee not the Titanic, which he's already (metaphorically) on. "Recollections of Deane," oscillates between Montage (Montreal) and Hogtown. It resumes Johnny's essentially cerebral relationship with the eponymous Deane, whom Johnny meets at a summer job he shares with Porko. It describes the start of Johnny's academic career at Montage U, with Rube Goldberg, et al. It concludes with another splendid architectural metaphor, Windsor Station.
