Humpty Dumpty in Oakland Hits Bookshelves
Yesterday, out of the blue, I received my review copy of the new Tor edition of Humpty Dumpty in Oakland, which apparently hit bookshelves last week in a blast of fanfare no one was around to hear. I have to say I love the cover; the book looks really great - but as an Oakland resident I'm biased.
I can't wait to read the novel; the difficulty will be fitting it in between The Maltese Falcon (which we're reading in my second-year literature class), a never-ending stream of student essays, and all the owner's manuals that came with my new synthesizers, but I think, as an Oakland resident, this novel will really speak to me.
I think 'Oakland' may be the only city name to appear in a PKD title. Am I wrong about this?
Amazon is selling the novel at a heavily reduced $16.47 (or $30.19) when you buy it with Voices From the Street.
