October 6, 2019, Sunday morning -- Reading Sax Rohmer and Trina Robbins

In the Mission District, on an amazingly warm and beautiful morning
He is reading Dope, a comic book adopted and illustrated by Trina Robbins, based on a pulpy "drug panic" novel from the 1940s (opium). He got it at Mission Comics. He likes the person who wrote the forward, C. Spike Trotman, a cartoonist and publisher. 

Right now they are working their way through The Dark Rising, a young adult fantasy series published in the 60s and 70s by Susan Cooper that his mother read him when he was young.
