Posted on: January 5, 2021

All Y’All Vintage SciFi Month-ers have been BUSY!  I am IN AWE!  So many posts have gone up, the @VintageSciFi_  twitter feed has gone wild, and it is only the first week of January!

 

Here’s links to SO MANY wonderful Vintage Scifi Month posts!   I’m doing my best to keep up with people who have commented here, linked back to Little Red Reviewer, tweeted to @VintageSciFiMonth_ on twitter or used the hashtag #VintageSciFiMonth.  if I missed your link, I apologize,  and feel free to leave your links in the comments either in this post or in the “Vintage SciFi Month” tab up at the top of the page.

 

We’ve got a lot of folks already talking about The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. LeGuin. Grace LaPointe brought our attention to her acclaimed essay on the novel (spoilers!) that was presented in 2009.

Howling Frog enjoyed the detective/spy adventure (in spaaaaaace!) book Watchers of the Dark by Lloyd Biggle Jr.

Reißwolf reviewed Sailing to Byzantium by Robert Silverberg and New Rose Hotel by William Gibson (aw yeah cyberpunk!)

Lexlingua enjoyed the far future / mythology / secret technology 1968 Hugo winning novel Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny

IzzyReads picked up Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K Dick a book that opens in January 2021.

Jim at Classics of Science Fiction has a seemingly never ending list of suggested Vintage Sci Fi short stories for anyone who isn’t sure where to start their Vintage journey

Joe at Eclectic Theist is now finally able to read Anny McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern books in order! He’s up to Dragonflight.

Michael is getting a kick out of his Ace Doubles.  it’s a two-fer, literally!

Classic movie fan? Cinemashrew enjoyed the vintage scifi/horror flick Invisible Ray, starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi

Did you know that The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is one of Elon Musk’s favorite books? Me neither! Hullabaloloo decided to give it a try and see what all the fuss was about

Need more classic scifi movies? Warren Watched a Movie has an indepth write up of The Day The Earth Stood Still directed by Robert Wise

[…] Vintage Science Fiction Month comes every year, right after Santa.  The gist is simple: read speculative fiction written before 1980 (or the year you were born) and write about it in January.  Vintage Science Fiction Month is the brainchild of Andrea at The Little Red Reviewer. […]

It’s me again. I’m not sure if this one counts, because it’s magical realism. But one never wants to miss an Ellison story for vintage month:

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.
