XII 9: and then

Top part by the Good Sister, who’d trump me if she tried. Have you read Dick’s The Three Stigmata of Elmer Palmritch? It was a book I stole for a flight, only to find previous boarding pass stubs serving as perpetual bookmarks for preceding readers. The characters were grimly resigned to the capricious universe in which they had been placed, contrasting with the bizarre Elmer Palmritch who, among other things, was a confidence trickster. This page drawn while I missed my flight out.
