Subject: (urth) A book worth buying? Date: Tue, 15 Apr 2003 04:19:22 +0000 Malco: >Lanark by Alasdair Gray Interesting...I was gonna suggest the very same thing. Bear in mind, tho', that Mr. Gray - encountered in the book as the author, Nastler - is very 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: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/184195120X/bloomsburymag-21/202-5635029-7452657 Should gain in value over the years... ->Zx<- ____________________________________________________________ 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. - Colin Kapp ____________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________ Hotmail now available on Australian mobile phones.
