"The Last Surgeon" by Michael Palmer. "It's not if I kill you, it's how."

Seemed appropriate to my latest escapade at Stormont-Vail. So far I haven't come out of my medicated haze to read past the introduction . . .

Almost finished with William Gibson's Neuromancer. About to start Jim Thompson's More Than Murder.

Super-Rich by Russell Simmons. I recommend it to everyone.

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, by Christopher Moore. Great, tender, surprisingly supportive fictional narrative of what 'might have happened' to the great ESSENE teacher between his 6th and 30th or so birthdays. Look Moore up; he has lots of great novels, including this one.

I'm currently on Fool, just finished You Suck, funny stuff. I had to start from the beginning of his novels and read them in publishing order because he uses a lot of his characters in cameos in future books.

"The Family"-talk about a horror book. :-/

J_B: Good books, no? Just finished "Island of the Sequined Love Nun," in part a satire on religion. In these times when the governor is satirizing jesus, the great ESSENE teacher himself, and trying to impose the C-Street Cult's values on our great state, Love Nun is strangely prescient.

Droll Mr. Kordahl, very droll.

Yep, read The MC when I was about 8 years old. Can't imagine how dated it must seem 55 years later . . .
