In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.

You have to dig a little for the good stuff, but here are a few places to start: Oliver Sacks’ The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, The Man In The High Castle by Philip K. Dick, The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison, and a handful of Kurt Vonnegut books.
