    Never read Pratchett. Probably should. What’s a good starting point? Any ideas?

      Good question—this was my first. I think he’s written over 40 novels, so I kind of just picked this one at random from the ten or so they had on the shelf at the library. I’ll definitely be checking out more of his stuff though.

    I download and post pictures of the covers of all books I read. It allows my readers to be judgemental, and accurately assess just how strange and disturbed I am.
    You’ve been reading some old ones – Bradbury, Christie, Heinlein and Stoker. I reread Heinlein’s ‘The Door Into Summer’ and read Gordon R Dickson’s ‘The Man From Earth’.

    BTW: How do you define phiilosophunculist?? I can’t find a dictionary which will accept it, even the ‘phunculist’ portion. Or are you just having ‘Phun’ with us? 😕

      I picked the word up in another Heinlein novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, I think it was. From what I gather it is someone who pretends to know more than they actually do in order to impress people….

        Thanx. It looked familiar, but…. I must dig out my copy and reread. I don’t recall it. I should have run it through a search program, rather than dictionary. 😀
