AS: What about that fiver you owe me?

Dear Jim,
So nice to see you for lunch the other day. We must meet up again soon,

This post is of course a PS, but it will appear above the post where I forgot today's recommendations. And I know that's what my legions of fans really want.

sf: Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell. And Frankenstein, Mary Shelley. Brave New World, Aldous Huxley, etc. Oh come on you snobs, I know they're classsed as literature, but they transcend that narrow genre, and really have a lot to offer as serious sf.
crime: something by Robert B Parker. doesn't much matter which.
if you don't know it: The Spire, William Golding
lunch: burger and chips. dinner: chicken and chips. I was busy, ok? I know it's no excuse.
