    The only one I’ve read is Brodeck’s Report — and very good it was too, one of those books that lingers in the mind months after you’ve finished it.

    I haven’t read any of them, kimbofo. I hope to get to some of them in the coming months. I remember you talking about Brodeck’s Report, so that one stands out.
