Just finished Logan's Run over the weekend. It's a dystopian novel from the late 60's, set in a universe where everyone is killed at age 21 in order to conserve resources. Naturally, when the man hunting the "runners", the ones who try to escape, turns 21, he... doesn't want to die.

It's a fun read, only about 140 pages. Lots of action, lots of fun techno-stuff. He also talks about new super-techno-LSD-from-the-future, which is a hoot. I wonder where he got his inspiration for this story...
You are a wonderful human being, and I love you.

I haven't read that book yet, but I did read 1915: The Death of Innocence, and it comes highly recommended.

Anytime pal!

I think this might be the most important book I'll be reading for a while. The book tries to explain how we moved from the now-defunct era of future shock into presentism, and is rife with contemporary examples and insights even if that leaves the reader a bit disjointed. And another bonus is that it lays out for me in simple english why I'm the type who doesn't enjoy Lost or Game of Thrones :lol: :lol:
