sorry abfab, I didn't mean to make you think I was offended. I don't offend easily at all. Just don't say that you don't like strawberries. ;) :)
I can see what you mean about that movie plot.
- Kurt Vonnegut is good. I'm definately a fan of his also. Maybe start out with his short stories... They give a good mix.
- Phillip K. Dick is excellent also. I love his "Valis" trilogy. Very hard to describe, but so incredibly inventive... He wrote it after a religious experience... he may have suffered from mental illness.. not sure. Here's a review I found of the book I found...
(from Amazon again)
"Before this, he had written about a robot-hunter who suspects he may be a robot himself and a world in which people age in reverse, but Valis is the point where Philip K. Dick really got weird. Based on a supposed experience of the author himself, Valis is the story of Horselover Fat, a man who God (or some being of the sort) contacted using a pinkish ray of light. Fat is a 60s burnout trying to survive in the 70s and this encounter encourages him to write an exegesis, explaining the workings of the universe which apparently include a race of three-eyed creatures and an elaborate system of holograms. Fat is egged on by a group of friends including the Catholic David, the cynical Kevin, the cancer-ridden Sherri and a science fiction named Philip K. Dick, who freely admits he is also Horselover Fat (It will almost make sense after you have read it). Valis is part postmodern experiment, part philosophical treatise and even part science-fiction novel. For people who like their literature inventive, pensive and consciously bizarre (and that is how most Dick fans like their literature), Valis is sure to be a winner."
I found Valis fascinating.
confuses fiction with reality
