About Author

  1. Poet and cynic, Thomas M Disch brought to the sf of the New Wave a camp sensibility and a sardonicism that too much sf had lacked His sf novels include Camp Concentration, with its colony of prisoners mutated into super intelligence by the bacteria that will in due course kill them horribly, and On Wings of Song, in which many of the brightest and best have left their bodies for what may be genuine, or entirely illusory, astral flight and his hero has to survive until his lover comes back to him both are stunningly original books and both are among sf s accomplishedly bitter sweet works.In recent years, Disch had turned to ironically moralized horror novels like The Businessman, The MD, The Priest and The Sub in which the nightmare of American suburbia is satirized through the terrible things that happen when the magical gives people the chance to do what they really really want Perhaps Thomas M Disch s best known work, though, is The Brave Little Toaster, a reworking of the Brothers Grimm s Town Musicians of Bremen featuring wornout domestic appliances what was written as a satire on sentimentality became a successful children s animated musical.Thomas M Disch committed suicide by gunshot on July 4, 2008.

One thought on “334

  1. FULL AND FINAL REVIEW The end of the world Let me tell you about the end of the world It happened fifty years ago Maybe a hundred And since then it s been lovely I mean it Nobody tries to bother you You can relax You know what I like the end of the world Thomas M Disch, 334Thomas M Disch s 1974 novel, a mix of science fiction and Zola like social realism, eyeballs 334 East 11th Street, New York City, home to a teeming mass of miserable, poverty stricken occupants of a 21st century multistory apa [...]


  2. Like most of Thomas Disch, this book is criminally underrated It s a series of episodes centering around the same set of characters, living in a dystopian near future New York City it s hard to know whether to call it a loosely structured novel, or a tightly integrated collection of short stories The most natural comparison point is a movie like Short Cuts, Magnolia or Crash, with multiple intersecting story lines and a big ensemble cast My favorite sequence must be Angouleme, where a bunch of b [...]


  3. Disch coulda been a contender From 1965 to around 1972 he was on fire, the living breathing cursing drugged up gay personification of New Wave SF, which was a whole thing where JG Ballard s the only alien planet is Earth and exploring Inner Space not Outer Space was the thing to do New Wave SF became a feature of the counterculture, and I d like to explain all that but I m exhausted thinking about it There was a lot going on in those years Not just John Yoko And in SF there was a big fight, and [...]


  4. This confirms my belief that Disch is the best writer no one has ever heard of The first half of this are somewhat interconnected short stories in the not too distant future which range from entertaining Bodies , disorienting Everyday Life , strangely sweet Emancipation , chilling Death of Socrates , and phenomenal Angouleme The second half are vignettes about a family living in a lower income housing project of a not too distant dystopian future New York Its skilled kaleidoscopic presentation o [...]


  5. How is it that I d never heard of this guy Within the last few months, I read his three most critically acclaimed novels, and each is better than the last 334 is actually a series of vignettes, all centered on a particular government housing project in NYC whose address is 334 Disch uses science fiction in order to accomplish satire, to stretch to the level of ridiculous However, he s talking about the daily lives of most Americans His subjects are average people no remarkable types here And he [...]


  6. This is the novel or correctly, set of linked stories which for many showed how Disch was often too clever by half for the rest of us The novella Angouleme included here was the subject of a book length critical essay by Samuel R Delany, who argued that despite the absence of scientific themes its speculative setting made it inherently science fiction A snapshot of the 21st century lives of the people who live in 334 East 11th St, New York, it ranges from being at turns darkly comic and farcica [...]


  7. The Near Future is set in a degraded Manhattan the stories, whose linkings are so subtle and elaborate that it is possible and probably desirable to read the book as a novel, pivot about the apartment building whose address 334 East 11th Street is the title of the book 334 comprises a social portrait of City life in about 2025 CE in a New York where existence has become even difficult, intense and straitened than it is now and where the authorities treat humans no better than Disch s Aliens do [...]


  8. I nearly gave up on this book about 30 pages in, but I stuck with it and am glad Disch is an impressive writer, with poetic turns of phrase and artfully unusual constructions I grew to like the characters, despite their flaws, though I wanted of Alexa and the very interesting idea of time travel as therapy The storyline is intricate, and near the end I had to refer back earlier sections because of the twists and turns and intersections the diagram of the last third of the book was great By the [...]


  9. Esta novela , si es que se la puede calificar de novela, es muy at pica Es una serie de relatos sobre los habitantes de un edificio en una New York del futuro el 334 del t tulo La sociedad est en decadencia y la mayor a de los habitantes tienen apenas lo b sico, proporcionado por una agencia gubernamental MODICUM y hay una lite de ingenieros y programadores Tampoco se pueden reproducir libremente debido a la escasez de recursos, hay que pasar una serie de tests para ello.Los dos primeros relatos [...]


  10. Another very dark and sick speculative fiction You name it, this book has it murder, suicide, incest, prostitution, necrophilia, exotic sex, racism, etc There isn t much of storyline except that each story takes place in or around the grim apartment complex 334 and has many members of common family It uses a poor technique seen quite a lot in the 60s and 70s of extrapolating situations to the dire end To add to the confusion, the second half of the book jumps non linearly through time.


  11. I d give it 4 stars, generally, but just 3 for Disch He keeps my expectations very, very high.Kept.They re still up there It s just, you know, he is to Up there In the ether.


  12. Really unconvincing, really wasn t enjoying it, couldn t bring myself to finish it because I just didn t care.I think maybe I m getting burned out on New Wave SF in general.


  13. Sometimes you have a book which you just keep reading because you re sure something will if not actually happen coalesce from the strands to make it interesting 334 and do not be swayed by the false promise of the spaceship cover is quite simply a tiresome, difficult mess A cast of barely distinguishable characters fail to live well in a sketchily realised future society Any potential is wrecked by the scattershot rendering of disengaging prose If anything happens it s told in such a way that no [...]


  14. Like Nova, this is a good novel by an author capable of greatness I admire Disch, and was saddened when he took his life last year I have a collection of his stories, entitled Fun with Your New Head that is amongst my very favorite books.334 is called a novel, but it fits that descriptor loosely It reads like a collection of interrelated stories And indeed my friend Frank described it as a classic example of a fix up novel, since some of the stories were published separately first I d describe [...]


  15. Very interesting, incredibly complicated The first part is little different than a collection of short stories, but they each hint and themes and characters developed later There s a chart to help the reader follow the narrative leaps in the second half, across 3 characters, different years out of sequence , and narrative type another point of view , fantasy, reality, and monolog There s a total of 43 different vinettes in this section, and amazingly they seem to add up to a story It s a fun rea [...]


  16. Stumbling across Disch s The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars which I plan to read triggered the dormant synapse that I had read 334 a long time ago, in a galaxy far away i.e, Washington, D.C 1978 I had just finished A Canticle for Liebowitz and was looking for something a little edgier and immediate 334 is not exactly what I would call science fiction There were flashes of brilliance and humor in the loosely connected chapters of the book, written almost as free standing short stories Frankly, [...]


  17. Distop a depresiva y descorazonadora donde las haya G nero Ciencia Ficci n.Lo que nos cuenta En un futuro cercano, en el 334 Este Calle Und cima de Manhattan hay un edificio que forma parte de los proyectos federales MODICUM, con s lo un 30% m s de habitantes que el n mero ptimo planificado y en el que viven o con el que tienen relaci n diferentes personajes cuyas vidas, a veces s lo pinceladas de las mismas, vamos conociendo Novela compuesta por diferentes relatos y novelas cortas relacionados [...]


  18. So I bought this book around 16 years ago when I first moved to Florida At the time I was a working on a huge tracking project that had the project code 334 This project is what allowed me to move to Florida and keep my job, because no one else was familiar with the project, so my company had to let me work from home Anyway, I thought the connection was interesting Unfortunately, I finally started reading it long after project 334 had ended and I changed jobs and didn t like it at all When I was [...]


  19. I stopped reading this book I know that the gentleman who loaned it to my grandson who loaned it, unread, to me would say I stopped because I m a prude There may be a grain of truth in that At the time 334 was written, it was cutting edge to be as blunt as possible about sex, and the mere fact of putting it er in your face, as it were, was an artistic statement Disch uses his characters thoughts and experiences with sex to good effect telling us about the characters and society in ways different [...]


  20. Brilliantly written book about the imagined future in New York circa 2020 The writer has a feel for the place and the first several stories are great, especially the woman who uses drugs to dream of being an ancient Roman matron and even has a therapist to help her live the fantasy, the invasion of the barbarians overlaid onto modern New York The coherence starts to fray at the edges when we get to 334 itself I never understood all of the interrelations among the characters Probably a second rea [...]


  21. Inventive and very complexry dark and confusing at times.ere is very little like this book no matter whether or not you find it enjoyableme very powerful scenes spread throughout


  22. A Dickensian dystopia, this is a future as bleak as it can get Told in short stories that were fashioned into a novel, this book describes a welfare state gone mad A very good read.


  23. read the first story chapter and then accepted this just isn t my jam skimmed, stopped and read, skipped, stopped, drudgery in text form New Wave Sci Fi, Dystopian Fiction, whatever the hell you want to call it, this did not work for me at all maybe in the chronological development of science fiction this charted new territory or was some sort of diversion or possibly some Dadaist way of approaching the growing depersonalization of the world or just as likely there were lots of drugs and sex and [...]


  24. Here is one of those books I don t really care for that nonetheless I feel it must be completely my fault I read Disch s Camp Concentration and really liked it Disch is just a much better writer in terms of style and dialogue than almost any other sci fi writer of his generation The reason he s not famous, I suspect, is he is horrible with plot, and his characters tend to be a bit too broad and cartoonish to resonate At least those were commonalities with both of these books Disch is a cult wri [...]


  25. Man, this one was WEIRD When I first read the synopsis, it sounded right up my alley dystopian alternate reality fiction is something I read above all other types of novels I liked the first few sections The Death of Socrates left me with a sick taste in my mouth, and Bodies was especially disgusting But the middle of this novel fell apart, as far as I m concerned it was difficult to understand what was going on, and the connections to characters weren t as strong as the first section The last f [...]


  26. This book was so fragmented in time and setting that I had trouble connecting with any of the characters until nearly the very end I got the feeling that the second half of the book was written in chronological order, but then Disch took a pair of scissors to the manuscript, threw all of the fragments in a hat, and drew them out one by one to make the book seem clever than it actually was Parts of the book were a good read, especially the first few chapters and the last few, but I was disappoin [...]


  27. This is a very good book but it s also very depressing I recommend having a funny book lined up once you finish it.




  28. Every time I read Disch I can t understand why he s not as well known as Dick, Le Guin and other New Wave scifi writers 334 is an amazing work of art It utilizes extremely nonlinear storytelling, yet I never felt lost, confused, or annoyed It tells the story of the residents of building 334 set in dystopian think Transmetropolitan New York City It is effectively a slice of life story Now, I generally despise slice of life stories, but Disch finds a way to make the dull minutiae of life fascinati [...]
