Novel-ember: Day Eighteen

Day Eighteen: Bad Ronald, Jack Vance.

If you've seen the famous 1974 TV movie, be sure to seek out the original novel which is considerably darker and more perverse. Ronald's dream world is explored in more detail, as well. 

The premise and ideas felt so inherently 1970s that I was really surprised to find out that the original copyright was 1955! 

The book is incredibly rare and expensive, but Kindle copies are available on Amazon, which is how I read it and explains why I don't have an actual copy of the book to photograph!
