1) Can’t resist a beautiful Richard Powers cover even on a rather standard 60s anthology of short stories—includes Ray Bradbury, Fredric Brown, Theodore Sturgeon, Wyman Guin, Algis Budrys, etc.
2) A SF novel by Angela Carter — enough said…
3) One of the great (and lesser read) Soviet dystopias! Can’t wait!
4) Another bargain bin find by John Boyd… with some incredibly hyperbolic cover blurbs on the back about his earlier (and lackluster) novel The Last Starship from Earth (1968).
As always, thoughts/comments are welcome!
