Classics of western literature av Berkeley Breathed

Now wait for last year av Philip K. Dick

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
Isaac Asimov

'Wonderful ... a heady mix of Flann O'brien, Douglas Adams, Tom Sharpe and Ken Campbell, but with an inbuilt irreverence and indelicacy that is unique - and makes it the long-awaited, heavy smoker's answer to The Lord of the Rings'
Time Out om Robert Rankin

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.
William Gibson

The three-legged stool of understanding is held up by history, languages, and mathematics. Equipped with these three you can learn anything you want to learn. But if you lack any one of them you are just another ignorant peasant with dung on your boots.
Robert Heinlein

'An urban myth. Like the dyslexic devil worshipper who sold his soul to Santa.' - Robert Rankin (Raiders of the Lost Car Park))

En slem pike fra 1899

At vi menn har en svakhet for slemme piker er vel en veldig dårlig skjult sannhet. At kvinner har visst dette siden tidenes morgen er også sant.
Nedenunder finner du en sang om en slem pike hentet ifra operetten "A Greek Slave". Denne musikalske komedien - som var ørlite på kanten i sin tid - ble fremført 349 gangen fra 8 juni 1898 til 2 juni 1899 på Daly's Theatre, London.

Marie Tempest som Maia i "A Greek Slave"

She's a naughty girl!
We know it well
And mean to tell!
She's a bad one
If we ever had one:
Oh, she's a very very naughty little girl!

Hør sangen her. (innspilt 18 januar 1899 - og dermed 107 år gammel)

Siden sangen er innspilt på voksrull og dermed ganske langt fra det vi i dag ville kunne kalle high-fidelity så finner du tekstarket her.
