Richard Matheson – “Dance of the dead”

I wanna RIDE!

(from I am Legend by Richard Matheson)

I was not convinced by that one.


Richard Matheson – “Witch War”

Seven pretty little girls sitting in a row

(from I am Legend by Richard Matheson)

Very neat. Difficult to read. The style is telegraphic, but once you are accustomed to it, it flows.

War isn’t pretty…

… like those girls.


Philip K. Dick – “Nanny”

“When I look back,” Mary Fields said, “I marvel that we ever could have grown up without a Nanny to take care of us.”

(from Paycheck and other classic stories by -)

Nanny is a very nice story. Funny. Yet very powerful. The competitive business landscape is pushed to us by and for the corporations. Through them, we live their quest for market domination.
