"Ok, this is strange. salmon"

Ok, this is strange. salmon and I are doing this pollenation thing, right? So I'm reading Noon, JG Ballard and Carroll and all that. But I can't drag their books into the bath because they're all hardcovers or rare. So I pull out Philip K. Dick's ""Solar Lottery"" from 1965. There is so much snowcrash here it isn't funny. So much SNOWCRASH. Especially the Raft, media control, and a hacker/biochemist. Oh, and the language is a virus from outerspace angle as well. And I'm only at page 50. Haven't read this in years, so I'm self excused for never noticing it before. But why hadn't anyone told me?"
