The Ocean at the End of the Lane was so good it made me cry. Really light writing for Gaiman, at least in length... but man that guy has a way of making your teeth curl. How he comes up with some of his imagery without excessive psychotropic drug use is beyond me. There's also some heartwarming shit, f yr into that kind of thing.

... Grudgingly, though. I don't like being sucked into these soon to be cinematic abortions, especially being a late-comer. It's obviously a first "novel," but there is a sense of classic science fiction tension that reminds me of the '60s and '70s writing I enjoy so much. It is hard to put down, I'll give it that.. But it only takes a few chapters before its literary influences become painfully clear.

I'm really just filling the space between, here. I plan on re-reading Bradbury's Greentown trilogy here soon, and I recently finished the new Gaiman, which lead to an enjoyable umpteenth time through all the old Gaiman I have. Never where seems to be losing some of its menace, but mostly, the oldies are holding up well for Mr. Amanda Palmer.

I started reading Star Maker by Olaf Stapledon, about 40 pages in and it's not really grabbing me.

Just finished Boy Heaven by Laura Kasischke, and loved it so much I'll read more of her stuff, starting with the not-so-much-talked-about to keep the best for the end, and I'll track her poetry too.

Philip K. Dick novels. So far I've read Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said and The Penultimate Truth. At the moment I'm reading The 3 Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch. All brilliant reads.

Great, exhaustive study into Michel de Nostredame, and the deluded cult of personality that evolved around his quatrains. He never predicted jack fucking shit.
