"INDEED HE WAS A KING"
It's been a while since I read this bizarre Philip K. Dick speech. HTMLGiant linked to it today, and Justin Taylor wrote, "He’s the best example I can think of of a writer whose work is valuable (and enjoyable) despite the fact that it fails by almost any conceivable standard of reading or writing." I see Justin's point, although I don't know that that's really true. A Scanner Darkly is pretty great. I should re-read that. Right now I'm re-reading The Ebony Tower. But right now I'm going to sleep.
