"Having a Philip K. Dick moment."

In honor of PKD's birthday, I am hereby reconstituting
the PKD Book Discussion Club. We'll read a PKD book
each month and talk about it on a dedicated email list.

Details to follow shortly -- I am open to suggestions
as to the best mailing list/portal/egroup hosting
service. I have a little more checking to do to make
sure I'm not duplicating anyone's efforts in this.
(There was such a group on Yahoo! Groups years ago but
it was dissolved when the moderator stepped down.)

Membership will be free and open, but ya gotta read
the books as we go along or it won't be any fun for ya.

We won't tell anyone if you end up turning in the same paper twice.

I can't remember which of his 50-something kazillion books I've read. But I guess that's only fitting.

I have read at least half of his hundreds(!) of short stories. (But which half?)

Most welcome. I have a Google toolbar that snaps in to my prefrontal cortex.

If I am in town, I will party with you. Huzzah!
