11. Soon I will know if I am a KSR fan.

Made my 1st trip to civilization (a stoplight or a chain store) today in 4 months; a 2 hour drive through two National Forests, two Indian Reservations, and over two mountain passes in primarily timber industry lands to Humboldt Bay and McKinleyville, Arcata, and Eureka.

Bought the California trilogy plus The Years of Rice and Salt and Sixty Days and Counting. Goal was California trilogy.

Had to visit 3 three nearest decent used book stores plus a local independent to get the books, the local independent Northtown Books in Arcata, CA (Humboldt State University). The 5 books were the only KSR books in all four stores!

Back when JP posted the OP, I looked at my PKD obsession collection because thought KSR had done the intro to one of the 6 PKD Collected Letters volumes but was mistaken.

KSR did his PhD thesis on PKD and it can be purchased as a print to order for several hundred dollars. Evidently I never considered it a high priority purchase when I had the disposable income (also never bought the Underwood PKD bibliography that was always pricey and now way out of date).
