Hence the statue, placed near the mummy in the tomb, is also called the Ka. Kaaba: [Arabic: "kabah" = "a square house"] Holiest of all Islamic shrines, at the center of the Great Mosque, reputedly built before Adam.

He wrote the definitive fiction of paranoia, anxiety, and reaction to a paradoxical universe whose very structure precludes normalcy, thus predating Jorge Luis Borges and Philip K. Dick in the emphasis on Epistomological/Ontological fiction which grapples with the nature of reality and how we know it. * "Die Verwandlung" [Germany, 1915; as "The Metamorphosis", London: 1937] Translated by A.

Joan Kahn, Greenwillow, 1987] Herman Kahn (15 Feb 1922-1981?) Very important person in the history of American foreign policy and the field of Futurology. Herman Kahn (as I have determined) was a promising graduate student of Physics at Caltech, whose professors felt that he had "the right stuff" to someday win a Nobel Prize, but he felt that sociopolitical problems were more difficult and interesting. He scored the single highest level ever observed on the standard U.S. armed forces intelligence test (equivalent to a 220+ I.Q., some think) and was an obvious genius. He headed R&D at the RAND corporation (Air Force think tank) then began his own think tank, the famous Hudson Institute. There he perfected his analysis of war and peace in international policy, including the "Scenario" method of forecasting -- in essence, first crunching the numbers and then writing a series of science fiction short stories about alternative futures. In fact, he hired an assistant (whom I've met) whose job it was to read all the science fiction magazines and record every interesting technical and sociological idea for further study. With Anthony J. Weiner and the Hudson Institute, he wrote the definitive Futorology book: "The Year 2000" (New York: Macmillan, 1968), a must-read for SF authors, if only for its list of 100 possible future inventions. He was, in essence, the #1 consultant to the military-industrial complex. He told me (as I foolishly declined a job at the Hudson Institute) that he was hired by the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, who sent him in to do the definitive study of the war in Vietnam. He asked for carte blanche, to be able to go anwhere, see any documents, interview anyone. On his return, he presented his massive analysis in writing to the Joint Chiefs, but prefaced it with this oral summary: "Gentlemen: I have determined that there ar 23 unacceptable ways of winning the war in Vietnam, including nuclear and biological options, 14 acceptable ways of winning, and only one way of losing. And, gentlemen, you have found it." A great Santa Claus of a man, gentle, friendly, and thoughtful, he was reviled by a leftist public that assumed he was a fascist "hawk" from his controversial books "On Thinking the Unthinkable" and "On Thermonuclear War." He invented the words "Megadeath" and "The Doomsday Device" and thus is part of the composite villain (with Henry Kissinger) Dr. Strangelove in the Kubrick's nuclear holocaust masterpiece "Dr. Strangelove, or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb." How do I know all this, gentle reader? Well, I dated his daughter Deborah in the late 1960s. This was on the summer retreat of Fire Island, where cars are banned, and people carry their groceries home on little red wagons. I painted a mushroom cloud on his wagon, a prank which he found eminently amusing. Just as most of us can think faster than we can type, which messes up our writing, he could think much faster than he could talk, and so he tended to leave out the ends of his sentences, which made conversation mysterious. He, his brilliant wife (who was a "computer" in the Manhattan Project), his practical-joking son and pragmatic/romantic daughter seemed oddly familiar to me. When I asked, Debbie said "Oh, yes. Bobbie Heinlein asked us if he could use us as the model for the family in 'Podkayne of Mars.'" So I, Jonathan Vos Post, can say that I once dated the fictional character Podkayne.

See also "Lamia." Central to recent novels including: * The Stress of Her Regard [1989] Tim Powers * the "Hyperion" series by Dan Simmons "Endymion" by John Keats (composed between April and November 1817) opens with the familiar "A thing of beauty is a joy forever," and although loose in style and weak in narrative content, is so replete with color and music, with such enchanted atmosphere and scenery, that it often amazes by its lack of reticence. Yet there are strokes of pure beauty no cautious artistry could achieve. There is sheer magic in the story of Endymion and the Moon, and the former's wandering over the Earth and under it, and in the sea and through the air, with no sharp line between what happens and what is dreamt. More than any other poem, perhaps, it shows Keats, whatever his drab surroundings, as the sensuous lover of all loveliness. Whether he digresses to legends of Cybele, Glaucus and Scylla, or Alpheus and Arethusa, in no way related, does not seem to matter. The "Hymn to Pan" (book I) and the roundelay to Bacchus "O sorrow" (book IV) mark the heights of the poem, and are familiar by inclusion in anthologies. Keats himself told his critics that he recognized in "Endymion": "a feverish attempt rather than a deed accomplished." It followed in the footsteps of "Endymion, the Man in the Moon" by John Lyly (performed 1587, printed 1591), a play in prose presented before Queen Elizabeth, over two centuries earlier. More than a century later, this poem inspired the amazing literary Space Opera in four volumes by Dan Simmons, and the sophisticated para-historical fantasy of Tim Powers.

Keller, full name David Henry Keller (1880-1966): Prolific Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Occult Detective author and poet whose first professional publication was at age 15. He sometimes used the pseudonyms "Henry Cecil" and "Amy Worth." Almost all of his published work appeared in science fiction and Fantasy magazines, as self-published chapbooks, with small presses, in small semi-pro and fanzines, and his bibliography is rather complicated as a result. Mike Ashley considers his Horror and Fantasy superior to his Science Fiction, and points out a "femmes fatale" anti-feminist slant.

Oddly enough, Robert Kelly was once appointed Writer in Residence at Caltech, and Your Humble Webmaster took various courses from him. He was widely read, and played the pipe-organ wonderfully. As an example of his non-grasp of science, he once mentioned that he thought that airplanes flew because the faster something moves, the lighter it becomes (a curious inversion of Einsteinian Relaivity) and thus, he concluded, if a fast-moving car ran over your foot, it would not crush your toes. He once cribbed a poem from a science article by Ctein (see Ctein).

As a fan of James Bond, he helped catapault Ian Fleming to celebrity. John Fitzgerald Kennedy was the leader whose bold decision enabled human travel to the Moon in the 1960s. This has resulted in his being a character in numerous Science Fiction works (such as the film "Apollo 13" and the HBO TV series "From the Earth to the Moon"]. Similarly, his assassination by what a vast majority of Americans believe to be a conspiracy puts him uncomfortably in the center of a vast literature of the paranoid. John M.

Alfred Kubin (1877-1959), artist/novelist in Austria. In Fantasy, Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) dominated as an obsessively horrific visual artist. He illustrated his remarkable novel "Die andere Seite" [the Other Side], published in 1908, which dealt with an artist invited by a fabulously rich friend, Patera, to live in the Asian city-state Patera constructed: "The Dream Kingdom." This realistic/incomprehensible paradox of a location is beseiged by bizarre epidemics, and is ultimately destroyed. This classic has been frequently translated.
