The Avram Davidson treasury A tribute collection. Edited by Robert Silverberg & Grania Davis.

I have had a quick breakfast and I am off to the library to return my library books.
The peonies are now very flagrant in the garden and it will soon be time for them to be deadheaded.
Younger boy is asleep still and will be woken up to have lunch.
It is already late. I have been reading "Avram Davidson Treasury". It is an amazing book. I have read it in the past but this book is well worth reading to dissect how the writer made us feel.
We have stories that make us think and think deeply. But to have stories that go beyond thinking to feeling the heart of a problem--well that is different.
I have requested more of his books from TAL Online and I'd best go to the library to return and pick up the books that are there.
