it took me several attempts but eventually I read the entirety of Moby Dick. it is one of my favorite books and I’ve reread it several times since.
how could I not like a *sequel* to Moby Dick, set ~one billion years in the future? where there were no oceans but whales (flying whales, natch) abounded and a good whaleman was always in demand?
Philip Jose Farmer invented the mashup before there was a term for it.
