5.0 out of 5 stars Malkovich and Self-Reference - beautiful combo, July 30 2000
As a concept, this movie floored me. I think the concept of a marketable portal into someone's mind needs to be explored further. As a student of self-reference (see Douglas Hofstadter's works for more info), I belly-laughed at the concept of Malkovich entering his own portal. The result was fabulous. A silly movie, but one I will watch repeatedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Belongs in every futurist's collection, July 30 2000

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful piece of work, July 26 2000
This review is from: Star Cafe (Paperback)
I was exposed to Ms. Caponegro's work thanks to the wonderful book, "You've Got To Read This!", where writers share stories by other writers that inspired or moved them. The Star Cafe is a dazzling display of human mental interplay and inner mental workings. I greatly enjoyed it.

You've Got to Read This: Contemporary American Writers Introduce Stories That Held Them in Awe
You've Got to Read This: Contemporary American Writers Introduce Stories That Held Them in Awe
by Ron Hansen
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, great collection, July 26 2000
A beautiful concept, having writers expose us to other writers. There are some jewels in here, if you've already read some of them, be proud of yourself, if not, the sheer randomness may turn you on to something you haven't been turned on to before. I loved "The Star Cafe", and discovered a new writer in the process.

Sudden Fiction International

by Robert Shapard
Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 12.78
29 used & new from CDN$ 0.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for EVERYONE, July 26 2000
This is a great book to buy for someone who doesn't have the patience to read. There are some brilliant works in here, some of them only a few pages long. Leave it in the bathroom or somewhere else you have a captive audience. You just might turn someone on to reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Male point of view, July 26 2000
This review is from: Slow Hand (Paperback)
My wife purchased this book, and after reading it through, I found it quite stimulating. Some great vignettes are presented, and they are written intelligently. If you like erotica by women, I also recommend Mary Ann Mohanraj...

5.0 out of 5 stars required reading, July 26 2000
This review is from: Lyrics, 1962-1985 (Hardcover)
Required reading for fans and non-fans of Bob Dylan. He's one of those rare musicians whose words stand freely without musical accompaniment.

The Scientist: A Metaphysical Autobiography
by Lilly
Edition: Paperback
31 used & new from CDN$ 6.83

5.0 out of 5 stars John Lilly for President!, July 26 2000
Boy, would that change things a bit! Dr. Lilly is an authority on some far-our stuff: dolphin communication, isolation tanks, and Ketamine. Mix them all together and what do you get? I don't know, but I wouldn't lend it my car. GREAT BOOK.
