    this is a kind unimaginable black hole in thought/ fiction- a true true original- the absolute real deal

    RIP JG.

    anyone read Super Cannes? >>>> in this book he imagines a far-off future in which an unknowing, post-capitalist society is run by an world elite who live in a city called Eden-Olympia in the hills above Cannes....

    Super-Cannes is great, especially the first 2/3s. But that final quartet of books suffered for being essentially the same book written four times.
