But there are still a bunch of noteworthy, hard-to-find, sleeper titles out there that I don't stock (no time or room at this point). For these titles I created this Amazon Associate...

Literature
January 10, 2005 - Cormac McCarthy... Writes about MARGINAL reality; gritty rural realism, with soul and philosophy intact. CM uses biblical diction and cadence at least as good as Melville and Faulkner.

Philosophy
January 10, 2005 - The reason for the following selections: I've long looked for philosophic works that took advantage of all forms of truth, modern, ancient, scientific, esoteric, exoteric.
