I have been reading mainly non-fiction from the library and mythos fiction which means I have been posting on my HPL blog.
I have been reading some science fiction. Doug and I have been looking at a list of science fiction works set on the moon and I have been reading a few.
Yesterday I set out for the British Pantry a few blocks away for some local sausage for a rice dish Helen was going to make. I also picked up some mince tarts cause it tis the season. There is a free library in a repurposed newspaper box that we pass quite frequently while walking the dogs. It is set back from the sidewalk, and I have found little of interest, so I do not check it that often. I checked it yesterday and was amazed. There were several Science Fiction book club editions with their original jackets. So I scooped up four that were of particular interest. I don't think I have read the Anderson or the Niven. Doug and I have often discussed how we believe Niven has created some of the best aliens in science fiction in his tales of known space. I am not sure this falls within the series, but I am interested in reading it. The Anderson should to be worth a look.
