You have read The Man in the High Castle, right? One of my all-time favorites.

Scanner Darkly was really like Nineteen Eighty-Four, but nevertheless really captivating read. Also Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is worth reading. Only thing is that you cannot wipe images of Blade Runner-movie out while reading it.

I just recently finished John Cleese's autobiography. Can recommend it. Very good lookback of a very silly (walking) man's life and his rise to the institutional position of comedy scene.
Haven't read The Man in the High Castle. Will look out for it. I did read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, but it was so long ago that I can't remember much other then it being quite different to the movie & being good. At some point I'd like to find the stories Total Recall & Minority report were based on & read them.
