When I read these three massive volumes, Covfefe permitting, my thoughts will start to be shown in the comment stream below…

Caveat Mundus

PLEASE SEE MY POST ON A BRIEF VISIT TO BONNYVILLE: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2020/06/26/a-brief-visit-to-bonnyville-2/

Other apparent co-vivid prophecies can be found in my 2011 novel NEMONYMOUS NIGHT (Chômu Press): https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2020/04/22/not-forgetting-sunnemo/

I wrote this at above link on 22 April:
“Covid-19 is in itself a truly dreadful global event. Deep sympathy to all of us. Whatever science fiction I somehow dreamt up in 2011 does not change that fact. Even if Covid’s potential side effect may positively help alter the eventual course of the planetary climate change disaster, nothing can alleviate any of the dire predicaments facing us all today. (My wife and I are in our seventies with already underlying health weaknesses.)”

Nothing has changed since then.


The Rich Maskery of Life

“He assumed the child was wearing a mask, until it became clear that the smooth skin stretched tightly across its cheekbones formed its real face.” — Justin Isis (Fake Ass Lawyers)

“But if you look hard enough, you can read rubbish as clearly as any great literature. And . . . it all has stories to tell if you can find them.”
— David Rix (FEATHER: Tales of Isolation and Descent)
