    I see the heroes took the time to invent lipstick.
    This series seems to be 12 books worth of amateur psychobabble that makes Dick Blade look like Plato.

    1. Darkness and the Deep (1943) features primitive humans, apelike creatures who communicate with grunts, yelps and gestures. There is no dialogue. Fisher is keenly interested in the neuroses of primitive man as the prime influence of human psychology. Wuh, the young genius, invents a form of primitive language. His woman, Murah, also rises above the routines of procreation, eating and killing. In the end, the first feeling of compassion in the world is dimly realized.

    Geez, Wuh, most guys are content with a single fig leaf. What are you trying to prove?

  5. Tor Mented Says:

    Wuh also invented last names and decided to call himself Wuh Sup.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    I think I know how Wuh got his name. He would explain some advanced concept to his dim-witted companions, and theyd say “Wuh?”

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    “Wuh, Murah… what is it good for? (Absolutely nothing)”

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Er, ah, Wuh, have we invented fire yet? Cuz I think the cave’s on fire.”

  9. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @fred: Ah, the “A Wuhzard did it” theory of human progress.

  10. Francis Boyle Says:

    “No Wuh, the readers don’t want to see your “testament” either.”

    So then, the first Burning Man Festival. Back when they kept it real. It got better after they invented fire

    @Tag W: “Look ma, no feet!” is going to have to be tagged onto at least half the posts here.

    @fred: Thanks for the link. Gad, these books sound dull.

    If they have no language, how do Wuh and Murah have names? And if they’re ape-people, why do they look exactly like modern humans?

    GSS to all; I don’t think this book deserves your wit.
