Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I finished Twain's The Innocents Abroad last week. Now I've finished Terry Pratchett's Small Gods (I started it Sunday evening) and begun a Philip K. Dick anthology. The Pratchett and Dick I received as gifts from Leonard. Thanks!

I actually found The Truth (My First Pratchett) more moving than I found Small Gods. Leonard had recommended Small Gods as the best of the Discworld lot. Maybe this disparity can be accounted for in the fact that religion (the theme of Small Gods) is to Leonard's youth as rebellion against parents (as in The Truth) is to mine. Or maybe not.
