I've never read any Ayn Rand, what should I start with?

What a classic.

No disrespect to King and Chizmar before I've even read all of Gwendy's, but Animal Farm is light years ahead in staying power compared to Gwendy's, in my opinion.

(I may change my opinion later. Button Box is the first in a trilogy, so it is possible I could be swayed the other direction after part three comes out in FEB '22. 

But it seems unlikely.)

It took me 20 minutes to order the dang thing as my OCD was sparked with the various renditions of essentially the same book cover.

My dad would say Atlas Shrugged. That is his bible although growing up I saw The Fountainhead out much, much more.  Fountainhead is a funny thing to call someone BTW.
Merry Christmas.

===============================
Allo!
Found this have I!! (***a pic  of what Belz found is at bottom of this  Lodge post***)

Hey, oh, Beelz!
Hi, oh, Zebub!
My, oh, Belah!


I am not 100%, but I believe the avatar you  mention was the close up pic of the brand plate on my portable Underwood. 

I have since switched to one of my illustrations that started out as a harmless doodle on a book shipment to a friend. Eventually it required purchasing some odd paint to get the look I wanted.  A very demanding doodle to say the least. The post office did not deserve to see my eternal work of art, so I  wrapped the box in brown paper. Well, you can guess what happened next.  I started messing with the regenerated "canvas."

I finally managed to stop retooling it and  ship it, but it was a little heavier.

You may see some R. Crumb influence in my coyote. Or even the less well known Bruce Hilvitz. I recall when Hilvitz did a Snakes & Ladders illustration for Gnosis Magazine.  I've always meant to do a SNL game board  of my own, but at this late date, who knows.

Hey, I found a few sellers of various Gnome Pressed Heinlein, but they are charging collector prices. I don't know if you're seeking Methuselah's Children or what exactly.

If you want the links anyway, let me know and I will send in private message.

That Medusa book looks nifty for sure. Perhaps $100 to $300 nifty for the hardcover London version which you appear to have.  Lol.

I found an old Kirkus review about The Medusa Touch.

Excerpt:

" Mr. Van Greenaway is such a good writer that you almost don't mind not knowing what he's saying -- sometimes in Latin or French or German which adds to the intellectual tone of his cryptic entertainment, namely, ""can a mask stripped from the Medusa, smile""? Kirkus, 1973


Heh heh. If that doesn't make me want to read The Medusa Touch, then nothing will.

I'm going to post this in the Book Lodge area. I want any book loving members who might not frequent the typewriter topic to see the Van Greenaway Medusa title you scored.

Thanks for bringing Van Greenaway to my attention!

30) EXTRAORDINARY HORSESHOE CRABS (1999)

by Julie Dunlap

I purchased this book several days ago. Interestingly, the Noory thread began talking about horseshoe crabs today because of something said on Wednesday's show.

If I had purchased a book on the history of Zeppelins / blimps, would  airships have been mentioned on the show?

Of course not.

Right?

Trying diligently to stay within topic here to tell any of you who are desperately seeking Susan that oh-so elusive motivate to take your own life!? I highly recommend the uplifting writings of Mr. Happy, Arthur Schopenhauer.
