Philip K DickFlow My Tears The Policeman Said ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $4.99 12.99
A great 70s story from Philip K Dick – written right before the author got very far-out in his narratives – and very much in the mode of his best books from the 60s! The story revolves around the usual PKD workplace paranoia – a TV star is suddenly bereft of identity, and without any sense of himself in a highly-monitored police state – unsure whether to take advantage of this newfound freedom, or try to recreate himself on paper – then doubting his previous reality in the process. This summation hardly does justice to the story – which draws its real charm from Dick's compact prose, and great ear for characterization – the kind of proper speculative narrative writing that, more than anything, gets at the heart of the human condition, even in unfamiliar circumstances. 204 pages, softcover.

Dunstan PrialProducer – John Hammond & The Soul Of American Music (hardcover) ... Book
Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 2006. New Copy ... $4.99 27.00
A great look at the important work of Columbia Records' John Hammond – one of the most important record producers of the 20th Century – and the man who's credited with bringing the work of Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, and many others into the spotlight. Many folks have argued that without Hammond, so many great sounds might never have found the proper outlet – and this book certainly supports that claim with great details and stories as well. 347 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.
