    Summary

    Preston B. Whitmore and Thaddeus Thatch, Georgetown Class of 1866, have grown from mere disaffected undergrads to mature, responsible disaffected post-grads. Realizing that they have fallen into the world's most obvious traps (see: business and academia), they set themselves upon the only reasonable course for men in their position: the gross misuse of their abundant resources and intellects in the pursuit of sites of cryptogeological significance.

    Because Atlantis is wasted on the young.

    Summary

    "...the most fearsome part of the sickness of insomnia was not the impossibility of sleeping, for the body did not feel any fatigue at all, but its inexorable evolution toward a more critical manifestation: a loss of memory. ... when the sick person became used to his state of vigil, the recollection of his childhood began to be erased from his memory, then the name and notion of things, and finally the identity of people and even the awareness of his own being, until he sank into a kind of idiocy that had no past."
