  • @scholrlea said in Re: The Off By One Thread - Book Edition:

    Nostrilia (Of course, most people won't recognize the book I am talking about)

    Cordwainer Smith fan? Not that I have read the book, but I've read references to it.

    Hmm, coming late to this thread, lots of good ones already taken. What shall I go for? Well, I'm reading through my Heinleins at the moment, let's see...
