At the end of H.G. Well's 'The Time Machine', the question was posed: "What three books would you take with you [to form a new society]?"

What would be
a. your three choices?
b. Goliath's?
c. Demona's?

Greg responds...

Forming a new society is so outside the scope of my ambitions or desires, it's hard for me to answer on the spur of the moment for myself let alone for the others.

Ultimately, I'd have to include the complete works of Shakespeare, something by Faulkner and something (probably) "The Blue Hammer" by Ross Macdonald. But then there's Stoppard's "Arcadia". Hmmm. I don't know.
