Sci Fi Reading
sun 8 nov 2009

I guess because I've been reading non-fiction for the past couple of weeks, I'm wanting some fiction to read.

There are a couple sites I turn to when I need some science fiction recommendations...

  Tiptree Awards James Tiptree, Jr. is one of my favorite authors, altho she mostly wrote short stories. The award is "an annual literary prize for science fiction or fantasy that expands or explores our understanding of gender". I discovered The Orphan's Tales here: two books I love ( cowinner in 2006) has an active blog with some really interesting articles every now and then. Here's a good one about The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (but don't bother to buy a copy from them! The series is free on Project Gutenberg: Frank Baum)

  SF There is always something fascinating on this site, it's great...

And yes, when buying science fiction I do give more consideration to female authors. And because of that I do "accidently" buy some fantasy novels as well. That's okay.
