    Gerald Livingston is an orbital garbage collector. For a hundred years, people have been abandoning things in space, and someone has to clean it up. But there’s something spinning a little bit higher than he expects, something that isn’t on the decades’ old orbital maps. An hour after he grabs it and brings it in, rumors fill Earth’s infomesh about an "alien artifact".

  • The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick

    Based on thousands of pages of typed and handwritten notes, journal entries, letters, and story sketches, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick is the magnificent and imaginative final work of an author who dedicated his life to questioning the nature of reality and perception, the malleability of space and time, and the relationship between the human and the divine. Edited and introduced by Pamela Jackson and Jonathan Lethem, this is the definitive presentation of Dick’s brilliant, and epic, work.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I reckon people who like listening to commercials would like this


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the stories were good, but the commercials took more time than stories


    How could the performance have been better?

    edit out some of the ads


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    was upset that couldn't listen to the stories because of all the ads


    Any additional comments?

    there is a ad at the beginning then approx 5 minutes later then again at the end of story

    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    ShySusan says: "Not perfect, but worth a listen."
