American Reflections On Showbiz, Politics, Outsiders And The Supreme Court

That is All, the third installment in comedian John Hodgman's trilogy of eccentric almanacs, is mostly fictive, if oddly entertaining. In addition to superstitions surrounding oceangoing vessels that involve women's underwear, That Is All compiles the names of 700 "ancient and unspeakable gods, known for their wrath, their cosmic indifference to humanity, and their tentacles." Hodgman
