i’m back in the tucky, unfortunate in some ways. i’m looking for guidance in Chicago of all places. been reading Dangerous Visions, the classic sci-fi anthology. its editor Harlan Ellison spearheaded it and sought no-holds barred, no such thing as a taboo topic short stories. they are all pretty amazing. Philip Jos? Farmer’s piece Riders of the Purple Wage reminds me of a somewhat happier, and more glib Pynchon.
New York i think is a bit too much for hayhaired me. the pace, the amount of effort it would take me to make ends meet would keep me from enjoying the city at all. if i get another job out there [perhaps pending with Third Watch] i’ll definitely return. i just wish i had had had had the opportunity to experience the city a bit more. have some fun. the only way i could have done that was by not sleeping ever, and well you know how i am with sleep.
i’ve some unfinished business out there though. most importantly, i owe a certain Edlund para edlundart a dinner.
