i was reading a book of philip k dick [1] short stories tonite. intriguing stuff. he has the same problem i do, i was happy to note: his stories are almost entirely "hey, this would be a cool thing to write about". the characters are minimally drawn, the plot is generally pretty basic, the stars are always some weird thing that exists, or that is happening. tho his weird things are generally actual things, whereas mine are usually something that's happening

[1] who is mostly known by having a novel made into 'blade runner' and a short story into 'total recall'. and 'minority report' whcih hasnt come out yet, is also based on one of his short stories
np: system of a down - aerials

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep is one of the better Sci-Fi books I've read, and the take on religion that he uses in it is supremely weird and scary.

I highly reccomend it.

haven't read that one yet. prior to buying "the minority report, and other philip k dick short stories" or whtaever it's actually called - something to that effect - all i'd read from him was "we can remember it for you wholesale" (which became a vastly different story in total recall)
