pretty new goodies
Posted April 28, 2016on:
The While I’ve been devouring Kage Baker books to keep ahead of spoilers in this read-along, some new goodies showed up at the house. And my friend Andy took me to the ginormous Lowry’s Books. And I bought some other stuff.
What of these look good to you?
What of these have you read? Which of these should I read first?
Goodies from the used bookstore:
The Proteus Operation, by James P Hogan, published 1985.
We Who Are About To… by Joanna Russ, published 1977
Destination Void, by Frank Herbert, published in 1966. Oops, turns out I already have a copy of this one, but apparently there is the original version of the novel, and an updated version… so if I’m lucky, now I have one of each.
van Vogt isn’t always my cuppa, but if you look at the find print under his name, you’ll see “includes Black Destroyer”, inspiration for the movie Alien. So yup, I had to have this.
and of COURSE I had to buy more Gabaldon! there was even a magazine cut out of Jamie taped to the wall behind the books! so cute! I wasn’t sure if I’d find these in fantasy, fiction, or romance, which gave me a great excuse to get lost in the bookstore. They were in fiction.
Here’s some new stuff I bought:
I’ll be seeing Cat Valente at PenguiCon this weekend, so YAY! Radiance!! and my local scifi bookclub chose Armada as our next book. I’m ready to be recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan armada!
so, what looks good? What are you interested in? What should I dive into first, as soon as I can pull myself away from Kage Baker?
The Valente and Cline are probably my top priorities.
I’ll be going to dark for a few days, I’ll be at PenguiCon over the weekend, and then Tuesday starts the family and friends road trip tour! home the following Sunday. I’ll have twitter on my phone, but who knows if I’ll sit down much at a laptop.
