These poems were inspired by the Alien Guide himself, while The Fire Poet was innocently scribbling in his scruffy book of thoughts and ideas.The Alien Guide from Inner Space (who also answers to the name "Agfis") is a very powerful little wizard-like alien who can morph into a legion of beasts and avatars and he whispers to you in Singlish the words you need as you're writing. He's definitely from another place altogether – he calls it Inner Space. The Fire Poet calls it the Infinite Imagination, or sometimes Splogadon, depending on what mood he's in. Whatever name you want to call it, it's really wonderful and makes the days a whole lot of spangling-boota fun.
