Vintage Month Comes to a Close

Posted on: January 31, 2015

wow, it’s the end of January already! How did that happen??

 

As it turned out, the majority of what I read for Vintage Month was published in the 60s and 70s.  I got a taste of New Wave, more psychology studies than I can shake a stick at, our fears of overpopulation, our hopeful expectations of future technology, and science fiction as written through the lens of the Vietnam War.  My focus on that time period was accidental, but i’m happy it worked out that way.
I want to thank everyone who participated in Vintage Science Fiction Month this year. Whether you wrote reviews, did a discussion or a guest post, or simply retweeted something tagged #VintageSciFi that looked interesting, it’s because of YOU that Vintage SciFi Month was a success.

A huge Thank You goes out to:

Thank you for hosting it. I enjoy the hell out of these old reviews.

they are really fun. It’s neat to see what’s aged well, and to get a chuckle out of the stuff that just hasn’t aged very well.

Thanks for letting me write a guest post. I love searching for a vintage read. Now to start the search for next year!😀

Another fantastic guest post! I loved that you talked about the book and the film. If you’re as bad as I am, you’ll be looking for vintage titles on, oh, about Feb 15th!

A big thanks to you, as always, for putting this together. I couldn’t do as much as I wanted this year, but still had a great time.

Another comment to add to the big old ‘Thanks for Hosting’ pile, and also the slightly smaller ‘Couldn’t do as much as I liked’ pile. Lot’s of interesting stuff about to read, even if my commenting has been sadly remiss.

i also failed miserably in the “replying to comments” department.

Great stuff here – thanks for hosting (as everyone has already said)! I’m going to try and hit a few more Vint Sci-Fi books shortly – I have one HG wells, one PK Dick and two Frank Herberts sitting in my book list – I’ll try to do a review on each. I’m starting to get a taste for it.

Thanks for hosting the Not-A-Challenge :)! I just barely missed getting my review of Rendezvous with Rama up on time, but it’s up today. It was really fun to see everyone’s reviews of classic science fiction!

Thanks for hosting this – I didn’t do as well as I wanted and only read two books but I love that it makes me pick up books that I otherwise wouldn’t have. Plus – I like to think I read two very good quality books!!!
Thanks missus!

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.
