Randomly Shelves or Something

My brilliantly aptly named new series continues. Where I randomly select two books from my shelves and attempt to find a link. I do not promise it will be a good link, only that it will be a link. It might be anything at all. One thing I do promise is that the link will not be […]

Rare Unsigned Copy – Simon Petrie

My lovely little plugin has given you the synopsis which isn’t too bad for a description of the contents of this little tome. I bought this some time ago wanting to support the author, I’d known of him for some time but this is the first time I’ve managed to actually hold his book in […]

Sales of 1984 skyrocket

I’ve casually mentioned 1984 in a brief article by George Orwell only a few months ago. What far too many of us couldn’t anticipate is that this book would now be rocketing up the charts and selling out. If you want a particular copy you might be waiting a while as Signet has sold out, but […]

The Left Hand of Darkness – Ursula K. LeGuin

I’ve been reading a lot of books and a lot of reference material but very little in the way of novels for the blog so you’ll have to be content with one of my textbooks instead. I have awesome textbooks, I may repeat this statement. I first read this book in the 1970s but I was […]

H is for Traci Harding

Harding shows that anything is possible whether you were bad at English at school, a terrible speller and dyslexic it is still possible to write a really good book, or even several really good series of books. In my stalking of her I found so much about her. She apparently got a D for English in […]

K is for William Kotzwinkle

Just filling in the last letter of my series on Male Science Fiction Authors, I was rather remiss and I’m making amends. I found this book at a market last week and realised I didn’t need to search for another author. It was at the St Kilda Twilight Market next to Luna Park, the vendor has lots […]

Alphabet by Author – Female Science Fiction Authors Summary

And here is the summary for female science fiction authors. I seem to have got it right this time and not missed a single letter. I’ll find some lucky male author for K for next week and add him into the summary before I make a final decision whether to continue with a new alphabet. I’ve loved […]
