|Not available in my county.|
First off, I look forward to January's annual Vintage Science Fiction Month Not-A-Challenge! I have two goals for this month.
- First, a confession: I have never read Heinlein. Not one Heinlein book have I read, and I suppose it's time to fix that, so I am planning to read Have Spacesuit--Will Travel, The Puppet Masters, and Starship Troopers. I would LIKE to read The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, but I have searched this county high and low and there is not a library or a used bookstore or a friend with a copy! Did you know that there is no ebook version for sale either?
- Iron Curtain SF: I have Prisoners of Power, by the Strugatsky brothers (whose Roadside Picnic and Tale of the Troika I liked a lot), and I also found a bunch of Slanislaw Lem, so I'm going to give him a try. I don't know which to start with!
I also have some great history to read, and I'm looking forward to reading translations and English literature...so much fun, so little time.
