1. An anthology of (primarily) 70s French SF? Yes! New authors (at least to me). New adventures. New perspectives.
2. I’ve never read James Morrow… I might as well start with his first SF novel.
3. Bob Shaw’s “Light of Other Days” (1966) is a brilliant piece of short fiction. And I finally have the novel version. After the relentlessly average Shaw novels I’ve read, I look forward to his acknowledged best.
My other Bob Shaw reviews:
Ground Zero Man (variant title: The Peace Machine) (1971)
One Million Tomorrows (variant title:1 Million Tomorrows) (1971)
The Two-Timers (1968)
4. I bought this virtually unknown Doubleday edition due to the art. First class art. Check out my exploration of her work: Collage and Mechanism: Anita Siegel’s Art for Doubleday Science Fiction.
Wait, there’s one other reason–I’m slowly collating titles for an “academia in SF” list and I might as well read a few of them.
Thoughts and comments are always welcome!
