Post Book with an Interesting Title
While browsing a college library book sale, I discovered a book titled Careers in Dope.

Turns out, it’s an academic study on drug addiction in the late 1960s and early 1970s with an emphasis on heroin addiction.

The book features case studies with interviews that read like crime fiction novels. Those interviewed go into elaborate and sometimes graphic details.

Given I enjoy writing, I’m thinking this book might help me if I choose to write more pulp fiction. I wrote a 1970s style, big city pulp fiction short story a while back. The story contains elements of drug culture.

Here's another book with an interesting title. I think it's an biography of Killer Rabbit from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

It wasn't until I entered college did I learned of Monty Python. My logic instructor would wheel in a large TV and show us logical constructs the show implemented.

Thanks for sharing the title. I checked out the sample on Amazon.

Haha. Not it seems the Python Bunny, but interesting still.
