Used up my store-credit at our local used/trade book shop. Picked up 8 of ‘em. Should keep me reading for awhile. =-)
Been doing pretty good on this. Have read 3 in the past month. I hope to be in the 1990s by end of year. Trying to read them semi-chronologically as I go.
Recently a buddy of mine and I were having lunch and we were talking about books and how much of the newer SF/Fantasy feels overwritten in some respects. Funnily enough I told him that I was reading “A Canticle for Leibowitz” right then. So we gabbed about how great ‘old-school sci-fi’ is. I noticed on the back cover of ‘Canticle’ that it had won the Hugo Award and that got me thinking about this as a goal.
Browsing the list I’ve read a good chunk of these but no where near as many as I had thought. That’s really exciting as the award winners I have read have been truly gems so far.
Ugh … gonna use the gosh darn listofbests sight to track this. Save me! Rew’s Lists . Amazon.com’s influence is a little bit more trasnparent over there.
