Shakespeare’s Planet by Clifford Simak book review

Are you living in the material world?

Are you afraid of dying? Has pseudo-science brought you to the brink of suicide? Have you selected suicide through pseudo-science?

What is trans-humanism? Do not worship the robots. Elayne will follow the slug people through the portal. But not before CARTER HORTON makes love to her. Carnivore is your friendly companion but the fuckin robot doesn’t like dogs.

The dragon is caught in a time capsule. The portal is opened by the slug people, simultaneously releasing: THE DRAGON, THE POND MONSTER (sentient, brackish, pond water), AND THE CARNIVORE.

A guy names himself Shakespeare on a far away planet that includes strange energies from space (the GOD hour). Shakespeare didn’t understand THE CARNIVORE. Do you understand the LION?

Some of my highlights:
