The Negri was pretty good although since then I've abandone wasting time with any text that uses franglais words from the 18th fucking century (Lummee!) as I'm really not big on Victoriana when it comes to sci-fi utopias. Why have Marx when you can have Dick?

I'm not that familiar with Negri but found this book real cheap so picked it up. I know what you mean, I hate picking through texts with archaic terms when actually simplier language could have done the trick. The older I get, the less patience I have.

I filling in the holes in my Dick collection so that I can reread all of his works back to back. An experiment that will hopefully remove any current markers of reality and send me into a deranged state of grooviness!
