Mmm. So it goes.

I’ll be looking that one up.

Another great sci-fi absurdist novel is “Bill, The Galactic Hero”, by Harry Harrison.

The distinction between Russian Comedies and Russian Tragedies always seemed to be kind of arbitrary to me.

My vote is for The Starcrossed by Ben Bova.

On a related note:

No mention of Yuri’s Night on BB? :disappointed:

Buddha’s Little Finger is an amazing Buddhist exegesis.

My favorite of his writings is a short story called Hermit and Six-Toes.
