8.) TIME OUT OF JOINT (1959)

by Philip K. Dick
Boook #14 of 2021's reading list:

Look, Chief, you can't go off half-cocked looking for
vengeance against a fish. That shark isn't evil. It's not
a murderer. It's just obeying its own instincts. Trying to
get retribution against a fish is crazy.

- Jaws by Peter Benchley

excellent read.

Indeed it* is!

Somewhat of a fatalistic blueprint for my pathetic and miserable existence.

Highly recommended**.

11.) THE SPINSTER BOOK (1901)

by Myrtle Reed


"A man will ride, row, and swim with one girl and marry another who is afraid of horses, turns pale at the mention of a boat, and who would look forward to an interview with His Satanic Majesty with more ease and confidence than to dip in the summer sea."

My Fall, Winter and Spring reads

Turn of the Screw - Henry James

The Mabinogion Tetralogy - Evangeline Walton

Norse Mythology - Neil Gaiman

Teaching the Law of One Book One - the Ra Contact

Study in Scarlet - Arthur Conan Doyle

Hound of the Baskervilles - Arthur Conan Doyle

Good Omens - Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

*Now you know why I'm so weird

Now that's what I call an excellent link in this world of chaos.

The Princeton Eggs. I tried to make some sense of it a long time ago looking for a big universal pattern but way beyond my limited scope and short attention span. What's the official line @Camazotz Automat ? Are we universally connected?  Right now I'm taking RA's word for it

I haven't read Der Steppenwolf I'm somewhat surprised to say but I dearly love Siddhartha. Very beautiful. I have read it a few times and thinking it might be time to read it again. I like the translation by Rosner
"Hate can not drive out hate. Only love can do that".

8.) TIME OUT OF JOINT (1959)

by Philip K. Dick

I seem to be reading this thread backwards. Still makes sense I believe. Not like it's ruining the plot. I'm a big Science Fiction geek and have read a lot of Philip K. Dick. I don't believe I've read this one. On my list it goes
"Hate can not drive out hate. Only love can do that".

@TigerLily - I had to wait for word from the Main Office.

(Now there, RIGHT THERE, a snarky New Orleans witch in the old AOL authors lounge chatroom would have interjected, "I do believe you misspelled 'Orifice,' Cam. I recall Ann Crispin displaying a similar omission when she spoke to us of one "black hole" gobbling up toy spaceships in one of her 'Star Trick' manuscripts. "

Jesus! Will she ever leave my memory?  Short of a massive brain injury, it is extremely doubtful.)

Where was I?

From the Main Office, the official Camazotz Automat company line regarding whether the interconnectedness of all things (and all times) is "true" :  Yes. (Subject to change. Your results may vary.)
