Happy New Year!

Vintage SF badge

Happy Vintage Science Fiction month!


Are you ready to rock ‘n roll for a month full of stellar patrols, pulp adventure, martian princesses, futuristic predictions and sword and sorcery*?    Grab yourself the image above to use as a badge if you’re so inclined,  tweet with #VintageSciFiMonth, shake up a gin** and tonic, and let’s party like it’s nineteen thirty nine!

As you post articles and book reviews on your blog,  toss a link up in the Vintage SciFi tab up top, so we can all visit you.



* Yes, I am playing fast and loose with the definition of “science fiction”. I LOVES me some sword and sorcery.

** did I really just say gin? ewwww, icky!

Ew, gin. Yay, vodka. 😉


great minds think alike!


Wait, so… would the Lankhmar books count? Because I happen to have the first four… 😀


Of course they count! I’ve read only the 1st in that series and really enjoyed it. Everything in books 1-6 is pre-1979, I guess there is a sort of 7th volume that’s got some stuff from the 80s.


Of course! 🙂

Glad it is finally here. Happy New Year to you, Andrea.


Ack! Hendricks in the g&t and Beefeater in the martini!


Hmm, Gin. I like to mix it with a bit of vermouth, and a lot of olive brine. Damn good.

Oh, this post wasn’t about gin?


this post is totally about VODKA martinis. 😉 nothing beats a vodka soaked olive.


Happy New Year, Andrea! I am hoping to participate this year. I got three books special for it. 🙂


Excellent! thrilled to have you with us! 😀 I am trying to choose slim books so I can get through them all.


I am enjoying a G&T as I type these very words, save for afternoon tea and cucumber sandwiches it is surely the very apex of human civilization. Savages and barbarians, the lot of you.

(Does this mean Earthsea would count? I mean if we’re throwing propriety out the window and all…)

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
