    "YOU ARE NOT HERE"

    THERE ARE NO EXPLANATIONS
    ARE YOU DEAD?
    ARE YOU DREAMING?
    IS THIS REAL ?
    This seems to be about time travel. Scop keeps traveling back in time, usually to the Kennedy assassination. He is trying to change the past in order to change his present. He is anti-violence, but pro rape. According to his girlfriend he is lousy in bed. I was pretty much lost from the get go. I listen to over half of it, hoping something would happen to explain the whole thing. That something would be explained to make everything else fall into place. It did not happen in the first half of the book and I did not believe it was going to happen. This might be good if you are tripping on Acid or something similar.

    Malzberg seems to have been semi-popular back in the early 70's. He seems to have been sort of bitchy like Ellison. Unhappy with the way things were going in the Sci-Fi field. If this is an example of his work, then I am unhappy with him and wonder how he ever got published. This is one of the worse books I have ever attempted to read. It had sex in it and I love stories with sex in them, so that shows just how bad he was.
