I'm now reading A Messiah at the End of Time or The Transformation of Mavis Ming by Michael set in the Dancers at the End of Time version of Earth. So far it is much like the books in that trilogy, and I wouldn't expect otherwise, whimsical satire in a far future where literally anything is possible (which makes the residents rather bored.)

When I finish it, I'll be starting the Moorcock graphic novel Elric: The Making of a Sorcerer next. I'm quite looking forward to spending some time with my favorite albino friend then!

i've just read 'Ubik' by Philip K. Dick - and its awesome, mindblowing, scary book.
 


i also like very much the adaptation of A Scanner Darkly with Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr, Woody Harelsson. Anybody saw that movie?

Yes, it is one of a handful of actualy great science fiction movies, and the best PKD adaptation ever in my opinion. You should read Now Wait for Last Year, that's my favorite PDK drug story.

I'm reading up on Mahayana Buddhism, having managed to forget a lot of it in the last few years. It's tricky, making good of all these text books floating around my person...

i've read "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch" and it's good as Ubik.
 


Also I've read "VALIS" which is the break of PKD i think.. it was hard to read this book.
 


i will buy Now Wait for Last Year in time Blade Runner is great movie, but not an 'adaption' it's only the idea from Do androids dream of electric sheeps. Minoroity Report based on short story of PKD is not that bad as an action movie. Greets man.

i dont want to make this a downer thread, but ive actually been reading the journal of a friend of mine who overdosed about a year ago. i went home for a little while because his parents had a memorial gettogether for him and me and my other highschool friends were in his room just talking and stuff and i found it lying around (his parents havnt even been able to move anything in his room yet, sad), i asked his parents if i could have it and they said yes.

its very sad but it definitley has been giving me a better sense and understanding of the circumstances surrounding his death, and in a way has helped me come to a little bit better terms with it.

so uhh, yeah sorry for that. but thats really what ive been reading.

You'll shoot me for this, I'm sure, because it seems like such a Cantankerous kind of thing to do, but I'm re-reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Some of the ideas in that book reminded me of Snow Crash... which is def. a lighter read...

VALIS is such a dense book, with a million and one references to various things. I'm glad Wikipedia was invented before I tried to make it through that one. But, even if you don't understand EVERYTHING at first, it still has enough funny parts or just interesting ideas to keep it going...

I just know if I ever finish losing my mind, I probably won't be able to make such a good book out of it.

Excellent, excellent book. I read it 5 or so years ago.

Ulysses page 638. Getting close to the end now.
