    I can't read McCarthy. His punctuationless affect and his lit'ry snobbery kill his work for me. Don't even hand me Atwood. UBIK is cyberpunk?
    SWAN SONG>THE STAND
    ALAS, BABYLON
    ON THE BEACH
    FARNHAM'S FREEHOLD
    334
    DAVY
    WHERE LATE THE SWEET BIRDS SANG
    BLOOD MUSIC

    Who reads LEVEL 7? Roshwald disappeared long ago.
    Nice try plugging your book, Ralph.

    Earth abides got pretty predictable nearer the end. It was as if it were blending into an already-been-told story. It was cool, though, the way things from the before-time broke down, the descriptions of the changes, overall, combined with the emerging culture of the tribe.
    The Road, I had no clue what would happen. The mood was entirely dismal, but it did end on a high note. For me, that was the most significant, effective part.
    The Gold at Starbows End was sort of uplifting ( literally for the ones who would get 'uplifted') but again it drifted into a set trope of someone else's end times story. Okay, with a spin, but still.

    Only someone thinking way too much about these have these sort of complaints. Sometimes you just have to enjoy a thing for what it is and quit with the analyzing.

    I didn't write level 7. I was like 12 when I read that book.

    Or were you referring to my reference to Calizona?
    Yes, I put the shameless in shameless self promotion.
    Books don't sell themselves.

    Mordecai Roshwald wrote Level 7. It's in my library. You can figure out the rest

    You have a copy of Level 7? That's way cool.
    I loved that book back in the day. It actually influenced Calizona greatly; especially the part about there only being 4 days of music in the database.
    I woulda killed myself by day 5. Right?
