Edit August 5, 2022: These were very good, but I just skimmed to end for time on the later ones. His mini auto-biography about wrestling was good here, and the sport was always interesting as a recurring theme in his early work, and his commentary notes about writing it during a physical rehabilitation was very amusing. He became one of my favorite authors many years ago, so I tracked down all his early work and read it, for much enjoyment. But I only have time to skim these days, so I miss most of his layered impact in these current browses, sadly. In a perfect life, I would have much time, and perfect eyesight, and would not doze off in my comfy chair just when it is time to read all the good stuff.

Aside from loving shared books, my main passion in life is supporting the human rights work of my good friend, Anni Cyrus. 💖 💖 Her life story of survival as a childhood refugee is astounding, and quite moving!

The Big Tech cabal is all about shadow-banning narrative agenda suppression against real freedom truth-tellers, but please look her up anyway on Google, DuckDuckGo, and YouTube, etc., and make a compassionate judgment. You can also follow her on Facebook and Instagram, among other platforms.
