Thanks -- no name, no hover images, no nothing. So maybe just aesthetics and I shouldn't have wasted so much time trying to open it!

Totally fair -- to the extent they're sci fi, it's often tangential to what you're getting out of the book. Sirens of Titan feels very sci fi to me, but Players Piano doesn't, even though it would...

Also doesn't help that I'm an idiot and remembered wrong. I checked my spreadsheet and I've never read it. I was thinking about Old Man and the Sea, not Moby Dick. OOOOOOOPS!

Using the hearthstone was what eventually got me back safely, but it took a couple deaths before I remembered I had that!
