My Dear Friend

I am Vran, first child of Endol of the Prador Homeworld. My father to which I was greatly loyal have been killed in the Prador Fourth Kingdom war. I am on the Homeworld and am unable to access my deceased fathers assets due to new tax levies imposed by the brutal dictator King Vrell.

Mr Asher friend, if you could only wire me the 30,000 New Carth shillings required for me to pay the tax levy I will be able to access my late fathers accounts and will repay your kindness with the equivalent of 1 BILLION New Carth shillings in PRADOR DIAMOND SLATE.

You must appreciate the dire circumstances MR Ashers friend. I will trust in you to reply to me with your bank account number and sort code and look forward to a profitable relationship.

Your everloving friend, Vran.

West Scuttleling, Prador Homeworld

Larry, I'm currently reading Chaga by Ian MacDonald. I have a large stack of other sci first stuff lining up after it.

deep throating Baxter's "Exultant". characterizing is flat, but it's a groovy mess of ideas pumped into a space opera setting.

just watched BLACK'S GAME (Iceland drug war), HOUSE HUNTING (exiled to looplive in a house), & UNIVERSAL SOLDIER, Day of Reconning (action movie with PKD brain glitch, clone death fun, loused edits) all decent watches.

anyone chugged this ocean stuff? oh the colors..
