  1. A Man for All Seasons…..The Martian Chronicles…… The Man Who Sold the Moon.
    The Man in the Iron Mask,
    The graphic novels Maus and Mr. X
    I will stop Googling now.

  2. I love Philip K. Dick! Also Misty of Chincoteague.

    In re, The Minority Report: Philip K. Dick also wrote “We Can Remember it for you Wholesale,” which was later made into a little movie you may have heard of, called “Total Recall.” That’s how I got introduced to him, myself. He’s so good!!

    I’ve never read Les Miserables either, despite having owned the book for decades. LOL
