                                  CELTIC KNOT






                            HOW TO READ THIS BOOK
                           IN PAPERBACK AND ON-LINE

            To do justice to the way Drummer drew roots from 1960s gay popular cul-
            ture and shaped fin de siecle gay popular culture and leather history from
            as many points of view as possible, and to assist readers scrolling piecemeal
            through the text on the internet, this book contains nineteen interconnected
            chapters.
               I designed them purposely to build and loop around one another, like
            a Celtic Knot, sometimes telling the same story twice or three times as the
            different points of view of all the eyewitnesses’ testimony affirm or contra-
            dict each other.
               I hope this frisson encourages readers to peruse the rich text and fire up
            their own critical thinking.
