The Mind is a Dangerous Weapon

Authored by David Smith

Dillinger Flaikwaiter was a soldier in Vietnam. After taking lead in the belly while serving his country, he finds himself in a private room at the Hanoi Hilton where he survives only by seeking salvation in a fantasy world based on his reality. A travelling road show/freak circus is his first stop on this crazy escape from the anguish caused by his captors. After an encounter with a church-going damsel in distress and a torrid tumble with a Yugoslavian hooker, he follows his own calling to a religious way of life. Bishop Flakewaiter of the Church of the Almighty yet Blessed Dollar Sign listens to God's voice. With the help of Deacon Allonzo, Hiawatha Hyacinth and Haymon the giant, he does God's work. But is it really God who has taken Dillinger by the hand or is it instead the cold hard steel-on-steel slamming shut on his mind?

What happens to Dillinger after the war? A life with a badge and a beat, but once more Flaikwaiter dances only to his own drummer. Still dealing with the mental stresses caused by the war, and the necessary escapes he requires from reality, he pushes himself and his partner to extremes none could imagine.

In Vonnegutian style, the reader is inside Dillinger's world, sharing his confusion and his thoughts. Always raucous, often irreverent, The Mind is a Dangerous Weapon takes us on the wild ride that is, sadly, nothing more than a mental escape from the deliberate hell man inflicts on man.
