1. “Monty Python’s Papperbok” by Monty Python (read with my brothers)
2. “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward” by H.P. Lovecraft
3. “Without Feathers” by Woody Allen (his obsessions seem oh so obvious in hindsight)
4. “The Mad Scientists’ Club” by Bertrand R. Brinley (small-town boys making UFOs and building submarines!)
5. “Shogun” by James Clavell (read during Summer of my freshman year in high school)
6. “The Hobbit” by JRRT
7. “The Silver Crown” by Robert C. O’Brien (read to us in 7th grade. Dark and paranoid and mysterious stuff by the “Rats on NIMH” writer)
8. “High School Yearbook” by National Lampoon (Christmas of sophomore year!)
9. “I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream” by Harlan Ellison
10. “Cat’s Cradle” by Kurt Vonnegut (way, way too much Vonnegut, and yes there is such a thing as “too much Vonnegut”)
