Visited my favorite used bookstore yesterday with this result-
Based on the title alone my very first by Michael Bishop. ‘The Guardians’ by John Christopher which I began last night, finished this morning and enjoyed very much. (young adult dystopian tale) ‘The Return’ by Isidore Hailbum, three by Philip Jose Farmer, three by Ron Goulart, two by Robert Heinlein and one by Clifford Simak. In addition to the Bishop a lot of firsts for me this week with Christopher, Haiblum, Goulart and Simak.
After arriving home, while flipping thru the Bishop, I caught a quick glance of ink pen writing. Thinking someone had marked up the book that I missed finding before I bought it, I went back to see how bad it was only to be pleasantly surprised to see this-
And BTW, at the bottom of the stack above is ‘The Profit’ by Kehlog Albran, (Kellog All-Bran, smirk) a parody of Kahlil Gibran’s ‘The Prophet’.
