Reading Children of Dune by Frank Herbet and Junji Ito's graphic novel adaptation of No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai, which is giving me crippling depression.

Decided to pick up the PDF version of Man in the High Castle by Philip K Dick. I'm a fan of alternate history.

I always really liked Phillip K. Dick's ideas, but found his prose rather lackluster.

Overall so far, the book is kinda boring. I for one could say that the Amazon adaptation is better than the book, IF Amazon hadn't botched its development.

"The universe did never make sense; I suspect it was built on government contract."
-Robert Heinlein

"Affordability
Suitability (.22LR for squirrels, bigger .22s for long range little things, and big-bore for legal hunting reasons, etc)
Ammunition supply-chain (6.5x55 Swede and .303 British, although available, isn't exactly everywhere)
If it's ugly, uncomfortable, and can't shoot straight, but it accomplishes the above, then it's either a Mosin or a Hi-Point."
