SF-LOVERS Digest          Sunday, 7 Nov 1982       Volume 6 : Issue 71

Today's Topics:
    SF books   - Yurik's RICHARD A.
    SF authors - Harlan Ellison lecture
    SF movies   - Star Wars parody, Star Trek, Revenge of the Jedi

Subject: "Richard A."

Sol Yurik's latest novel, "Richard A." definitely falls within the
science fiction spectrum. Richard A. is a wild-talent phone freak who
devises a system to tap conversations on selected phones and then tap
automatically the persons called by his subjects. He does this for
fun, but unwittingly stumbles across webs of intrigue surrounding the
Cuban Missile Crisis (the book is set in the early 60's).

Ultimately, he discovers that his role is not so accidental, and he
finds himself involved in a millenia-old struggle between two groups
manipulating history: a group of Taoists and a group of Kabbalists.

Definitely worth reading, though it leaves you a bit paranoid.

Subject: Harlan Ellison lecture

Ellison will be lecturing on Monday November 29th at the Harvard Law
Forum.  8PM, in the Ames Courtroom, Austen Hall, Harvard Law School.
It's open to the public, and there will be a charge of at most $2.50,
possibly less.

That looks suspiciously like something I put on about 1.5 years ago,
+/- enhancements along the way.

BTW, if Spock really did do a core dump to McCoy, he'd better look out
for head crashes...

                Clever, however remember that Spock was perfectly
                cognizant in his old body AFTER touching McCoy.  Spock
                can't be in two places at the same time . . .
                                                        - Speaker

        How do you know that? Maybe he dumped the Vulcan half of his
        personality into McCoy's subconscious and left his Human half
        (which he's always been trying to get rid of anyway) in his
	own body, to be destroyed along with his body.

Hey, now that's an elegant solution.  Problem is that the Vulcan side 
that's left over is really not Spock.  The internal conflict between 
the two sides of his personality are what made Spock such an
intriguing character.

Besides, Spock wasn't in contact with McCoy long enough even for the 
'Vulcan Mind Meld', much less a complete seperation and transfer of
his consciousness.

that it means just because the Jedi would not WANT revenge doesn't 
mean they'll get some anyway?
