Novelist Ira Levin died yesterday. I read several of his novels back in my highschool days and he was one of the reasons I got into SF/Fantasy. I fondly remember one of his lesser-known works: "This Perfect Day", about a totalitarian society and the struggle of non-conformists. One of the things that specifically appealed to me was a scene where non-conformists find out about rebel settlements on various remote islands by studying maps in a museum and finding out that those remote islands are hidden by (blue, of course) stickers.
