@khm I've read both Skinny Legs & All and trout fishing.
I thought The Persistence of Vision was something I had read but I haven't, I'll look it up :) thanks
@neauoire In that case I'll change my story:
Philip K. Dick, "Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said" and/or "A Scanner Darkly"
Niven & Pournelle, "The Mote in God's Eye"
