>Lanark by Alasdair Gray

Interesting...I was gonna suggest the very same thing.  Bear in mind, tho',

reluctant to have 'Lanark' regarded as science fiction.  He shouts 
indignantly that _he_ is writing about _real people_...

If you really want to spend some money on it, Bloomsbury have issued a 20th 
Anniversary edition; a boxed set with all four volumes as an individual 
book.  35.00:


Should gain in value over the years...



When God failed to respond reliably to on-line access, Mankind had to turn 
elsewhere to unload the burden of its own responsibility.  It invented the 
computer - which is far more accessible than God and just as satisfying - 
providing you never give yourself time to think about it.
