Read autopope's collection of short stories Toast.

I had some very very strange dreams as a result. Lovecraft mixed with Orwell, mixed with the Singularity.

(Apropos of skiffy tropes, did anyone else notice Belle de Jour referring to "doing situps from now to the singularity"?)

An excellent book, even if it's not up to his later standards.

After failing to get into them a couple of times previously, I picked up TRUCKERS on Saturday and finished it last night. I went to get DIGGERS to carry on, only it seems I haven't bought it yet!! I'll rectify that today. But The Carpet People was also sitting there unread so I started that just before I went to sleep and consequently had very bizarre dreams of carpet fluff and generally being very very small.

Do you mean autopope? If so, I can well believe it. Hey, you wouldn't think so to look at him...
