Knowledge and Hens at My Fingertips

One of the great things about Kindle . . .

Suppose I’m engrossed in, let’s say, Rebel at the End of Time by Steve Aylett . . .
. . . and I encounter a phrase like “Absquatulata Valve” . . .
. . . or “Orpington hens,” which I’ve heard of, but just barely . . .
. . . well, sir, I just tap on the word in question . . .
. . . “tap”. . .
. . . and we’re magically transported into dictionary world . . .
Of course, in a Steve Aylett book, some things remain baffling, and I mean that in a good way.

  1. Aha! I didn’t know that so thanks for the info. This could be significant.

  2. Orpington is also an area of East London pretty near (or maybe in) Aylett’s home borough of Bromley…
