I’ve read hundreds and hundreds of science fiction books from the classics to the not so classic. I’ve decided to use this blog as motivation to read new books. Hence, reviews of Dune (Herbert), Hyperion (Simmons), Stand on Zanzibar (Brunner) and other major works probably will not reviewed in the near future since I’ve read them already and until I run out of things to read I’m not inclined to read them again!
Instead, I plan on ambling along lesser known routes… Barrington Bayley’s works for example and the mostly out-of-print novelized 1960s pulp(ish)-adventures of Poul Anderson.
So, in short, a trip to a beautiful bookstore in Ann Arbor, MI yielded these:
Galactic Cluster — James Blish
Empire of Two Worlds — Barrington J. Bayley
The Fall of Chronopolis — Barrington J. Bayley
The Seedling Stars — James Blish
The People of the Wind — Poul Anderson
Double Star — Heinlein
A Life for the Stars — James Blish
Catch a Falling Star — John Brunner
Meeting at Infinity — John Brunner
They Shall Have Stars — James Blish
The Wanderer — Fritz Leiber
A Heritage of Stars — Clifford Simak
Earthman, Come Home — James Blish
A Clash of Cymbals — James Blish
Entry to Elsewhere — John Brunner
Nostrailia — Cordwainer Smith
Along with various other unread volumes littering my dusty shelves and various other hidden corners of rooms, these will constitute the bulk of my reviews/ramblings.
