@Rikki Gins

Supposedly, this is one of the last, or perhaps the last of, PKD's published work that was classic Pulp Science Fiction before he went into the mind bending stuff. I like both PKD eras - apples to oranges. I am enjoying this little book and am savoring it slowly. Unintentionally, I'm sure, this delivers some high strangeness (oranges) as in "alternate time lines" due to the type of future PKD predicted when this was written.

I recently drudged through Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. It was painful. I have no idea why I make myself read through something that I'm in the throws of actively hating. Perhaps I need therapy. (No comment required, thank you very much)

Fortunately, I rewarded myself with Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer and everything felt better. Not any less depressing fodder mind you, but better.

There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I can't read Lovecraft anymore. He gives me strange unsettled dreams. It's very disquieting.

@PolkaDot

I won't go into why this was a disquieting story for me. But will say it involved a disturbing set of coincidences that are "Matrix glitch worthy."

There is a back story as to why the story takes place in Binger, OK, headquarters of the Caddo Nation - for anyone interested in researching.

It was odd witnessing Lovecraft's horrors set  in a non-New England framework.

Even as I post this,  I feel a tingle in the back of my neck, like an implanted compass needle tugging toward Oklahoma.

Christ.

Oh my, this sounds like it could be your own makings for a short story @Camazotz Automat . You KNOW we all love a good story....

May I suggest The Terror by Dan Simmons?  If you haven’t read it don’t judge it by the television adaptation.  It is on the longish side for a novel.
I finally read this. Thanks @whoozit . I thoroughly enjoyed it, some of the foreshadowing was a bit overplayed but a  good read! I enjoyed the ending much more than the tv version.

Another book I enjoyed. It's a rather grim subject but an interesting one and I really like the way Ron Franscell writes. It's like reading a work of fiction in parts with succinct but colorfully descriptive language.

@PolkaDot

I agree! I am currently exploiting the "effect" via a tri-pronged attack, i.e. three interconnected novellas.

That should get "it" out of my system (or myself out of the glitched system.***)
