A special book for Omphalos!

Post by Liege-Killer »

I was browsing one of the used bookstores today and came across this:

Image

Pawn of the Omphalos, by E.C. Tubb, 1980.

The printing at the top reads:

IT HUNG IN THE HEAVENS LIKE A GIGANTIC OCEAN.
IT COULD TWIST MEN'S MINDS, MIRROR THEIR SOULS, DEVOUR THEIR BODIES.
IT WAS THE OMPHALOS.

My head, my life, it all makes sense now. I'm a sockprawnet. :)
Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.
