SF Signal , the most recent Hugo award winning fanzine , posted a meme on Saturday with a “last” theme. Here we go:
The last sf/f book I finished reading: Shift Omnibus by Hugh Howey The last sf/f book I did NOT finish: Perdido Street Station by China Miéville (I loved The City & the City but just could not finish this one. It’s very rare for me to not finish a book.
If you grew up in the 80s like me, especially as a teenager, Ready Player One is a book for you.
For fans of retro arcade games, 80s music and movies, MMOs, cyberpunk, roleplaying and early computers like the TRS-80, it weaves them all into a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I can’t do it justice, so read the summary here . And then buy it and read it, you won’t be disappointed.
Gregory Mcdonald, most famous for being the author of the Fletch series, has died at age 71 from cancer .
I’m not a big mystery reader, but due to Kevin Smith ‘s praise for McDonald’s dialogue in his novels, I picked up one or two of his books, and then quickly bought them all a number of years ago.
You thought the Fletch movies (well, at least the first one) were funny?
