1927: The Man With Six Senses by Muriel Jaeger
March 23, 2008
A man is born with a strange power that turns him into a human metal detector. When gold is buried underground, he can sense it. When someone has a coin in their pocket, he can feel it. And when the watershed 1974 metal album Rocka Rolla is played, he can hear it. Unfortunately his metal-sensing mental powers meddle with his mental mettle and he goes crazier than a falanaka in a coffee can (see? I told you I’d use it).
On a scale of senses ranging from smell to touch, this book is: decency.
