During a family break in (not so
) sunny Camber this bank hol gone, we decided to take a drive to Hastings. The beach being more hostile than the shops that day, we headed for the latter. Waterstones called to me as I trudged past with my hood up toward the drizzle and what should I find?
(see the definition of the word at the bottom of the cover too... - I looked in the (web) dictionary and that word is not spelled that way as far as i can see - least that is no the conventional spelling for 'pandemonium'.
I suspect that once I (or perhaps any of you) read the book
, a connection to something more coincidental than normal will transpire. Usually a small realisation or message or idea or strange connection/coincidence. I look forward to finding mine in there - although I am aware that I will be overly
aware if one does come along - and leaving myself open to that thing that Karl (a dark philosopher) used to cite a lot; where if you go looking too hard you can always make something fit...
Also whilst in the shop I happened upon another book that readers here might like:-
The first thing to hit me about this book (well second actually to the title) was a quote by Jean Baudrillard from 'Simulacra and Simulation' - a book I had never heard of until Martin (Hurlyburly) posted that he felt it related to something I posted. (Which it does - probably more than I can yet imagine since I have not read that one yet)
OBVIOUSLY I had to buy 'Our Tragic Universe' too.
I think I shall also order a copy of 'Simulacra and Simulation' too today (Thanks Martin). Two connections to one book in such a short space of time should be enough of a message for ANYONE to take the hint eh?
Especially when it's on a subject that I have a great interest in.
