I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

You will find, during your reading, Jo, that certain authors seem to have discovered all the things you have discovered, done all you’ve done. There was one ancient science fiction writer, Theodore Sturgeon, who would break me up every time I read him. He seemed to have seen every flash of light on a window, every leaf shadow on a screen door, that I had ever seen; done everything I had ever done, from playing the guitar to laying over for a couple of weeks on a boat in Arkansas Pass, Texas. And he was supposedly writing fiction, and that four thousand years ago.
