Decided to reread some Philip K. Dick books.
He's one of my big inspirations, but it's been a
long time since I read him. (25 years ago I was
searching all the bookstores of Seattle for his
paperbacks.) At random, I picked up The Man Who Japed (1956) and lo and behold, I forgot my
name is telegraphed all throughout this book:
Speaking of Mrs. Frost, Allen said...
The next day Allen had still not given Mrs. Frost an answer
"Mrs. Frost," Allen said...
Beyond that mystery, it was great to reread
this amazing prophetic novel. More timely than ever.
Watched one of my favorites again, from 1946
'Somewhere in the Night.' It's got all the inspired
touches from that time, the torch songs, the cellar
stairs, falling through doors, the waterfront mystery,
hidden treasure, fortune telling.
