With free time, I have been doing a lot of reading. Something long overdue and sorely missed.Amazon is the truth for cheap, used books. I have been picking books up for a penny. Three dollars for shipping, but they are gems.I posted before about Terry Southern. He was one of the writers of Easy Rider and Dr. Strangelove. I ordered Red-Dirt Marijuana and Other Tastes, which had the short story I posted below. I also ordered Now Dig This: The Unspeakable Writings of Terry Southern, 1950-1995. When it came I got two surprises. One, it was hardcover. Two, it was autographed. What a come up. I am trying to get my Flikr account up and working so I can upload a pic. Terry died in 1995.
I also got turned on to William T. Vollmann and Nathan Englander.
I have probably gotten six books, including the autographed one, for under $20.
