Thom found this most excellent idea and throw it through the transom, breaking the murky pane shrouding the brain but causing no other injuries.

Avant Game, the blog, has launched a Ministry of Reshelving project. All we have to do is go to the bookstore and ... well, best to let them explain the rest:
Go to the bookstore and locate its copies of George Orwell's 1984. Unless the Ministry of Reshelving has already visited this bookstore, it is probably currently incorrectly classified as "Fiction" or "Literature."

Discreetly move all copies of 1984 to a more suitable section, such as "Current Events", "Politics", "History", "True Crime", or "New Non-Fiction."

Note: this project is not a critique of bookstore culture, the state of the shelving industry, or even of pervasive government surveillance. It is merely an observation that 2 + 2 = 5, and 5 is no longer fiction.

Go forth and reshelve. And remember that our only true life is in the future.

We are the dead.
