My favorite book of all time "A spell for chameleon" by Piers Anthony. Got it for 50 cents at a yard sale. Perfect condition.

Also found a well used copy of "Cultivator's Handbook of Marijuana" by Bill Drake. With side notes on various topics. Found at a flea market for a dollar.

All My Patients Are Under the Bed. It was written by a cat veterinarian who made house calls in New York City.

The HAB Theory is a 1976 science fiction novel by American author Allan W. Eckert. The novel is from the apocalyptic fiction subgenre. Eckert believed that the real-world facts and conclusions he quoted in the novel, were worthy of further exploration... The book explores a version of pole shift hypothesis postulated by Professor Charles Hapgood in two volumes, plus the 1967 book Cataclysms of the Earth by Hugh Auchincloss Brown.


'Fun' introduction to the pole shift notion
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 81216147


I have that book. It was also what Chan Thomas used to start his research.

Hugh Auchincloss Brown holds the "Doomday Toy,"
illustrating his theory of the shift in the earth's axis,
which is precipitated by the interaction of a polar
ice-cap with the force of gravity.

Did it include the 2013 edition, additionally added chapter, or rather the one that had been removed ?
