Intro to the SF Stuff

Posted 04-29-2009 at 11:45 AM by chexmix

I hope it isn't too OT to post this kind of thing here.

As was the case, I am sure, with many ITfolken, I grew up on science fiction, fantasy and [insert genre here]. After I toddled and twiddled off to a too-long stint in college(s), I stopped reading the stuff very much, though I would occasionally dip back in ...

... I worked at SCIFI.com in Manhattan for a couple of years, began to rediscover my math/science roots a few years later (they'd been buried under three degrees in Theatre) and lo! the SF reading has come back.

Recently I decided to embark on a program of reading all the Hugo Award - winning novels, starting from 1953 when the Hugo was first presented (and skipping any "retroactive" awards). Eventually I will do the Nebula Awards as well.

Short reviews will be posted here.

Thanks!

    It will be slow starting - I have a mountain of homework to get through.

    However, I have already read THE DEMOLISHED MAN by Alfred Bester, DOUBLE STAR by Robert A. Heinlein and am working on THE BIG TIME by Fritz Leiber. So reviews of those three will come as soon as I can get to 'em!
