Ach, I highly recommend Infinite Jest. Squeak!Squeak!
Alas, not on the list of Masters of Science Fiction is “The Screwfly Solution,” which they had asked about the rights to.
Infinite Jest is a great book if you ever have a couple weeks off–you can go into Compulsive Crazy Footnote Land and live for awhile.
Until that vacation, just trust the “felt like I read it” feeling…
Also, the link was much appreciated.
