From the zine:

As anyone who is acquainted with me will be aware, I am fascinated by all things human. This is probably partly because I was created in human form, and partly because humans are such diverse creatures.

This book contains some of the odd facts I have gleaned about humans, throughout their history. I am intrigued by the way in which some pockets of humanity were quite advanced, when others were still savages. Individual humans, too, had minds far in advance of most of the others of their times.

Humans, throughout their history, have been stupid, intelligent, mean, generous, clever, ingenious, etc., etc.

Intriguing - no other race has quite the same diversity.
