Yesterday, I got an email asking about a book by Ben Mack, a work of fiction called Poker Without Cards: A Consciousness Thriller.
I had to admit I didn't know the author, but the Goodreads bio lists his influences as Kurt Vonnegut, Robert Anton Wilson, Neal Stephenson and Joseph Matheny. Pretty promising.
I also noticed that Poker Without Cards has as "letter of introduction" from Robert Anton Wilson praising the book. "Ben Mack is at the bleeding edge of avant garde fiction," Wilson writes.
I'm very busy right now, reading novels nominated for the Prometheus Award (book recommendations coming soon) but I'll try Mack's book when I can. In the meantime, I can report that Poker Without Cards is available as a free PDF file.
