I was able to pinch a copy of A Shining online I will let you know what I think.

Has anyone actually read "Bottoms Dream"? It looks something written by the unseen insect race Picard had to serenade after he escaped being murdered on the holodeck by Lawrence Tierney.

I’m listening to it on audible. Feels like one of those books that should be read instead of listened to, I keep wanting to go back to re-read parts. I don’t appreciate that you didn’t warn me

I have also heard how to lose the time war is incredible on audiobook but I think reading it on paper is a good first way to go. It's great I think about it too much.
