One of my favourite books is The Pan Galactic Pot Healer.
Two points if you can find out who wrote it.
I wonder if he got his inspiration from these clever artefacts.

I've never seen anything like those! Quite a find. I wonder if they worked well? Have you tried one?

No Pans involved in the pot healing Roger. It was the same chap who wrote "Do Andrews Grin Like Electric Ships".
The Glimmung are a race of beings who are a cross between a bicycle and a whirlpool bath. They eat the flippers of bagatelle games and live happily under the memory nodules of Venusian staplers.
