Taking a cue from a fellow AJS-er, I consider various books by my favorite author, Ursula K. LeGuin, as a literary on-ramp for younger readers.
Before he gained fame writing thrillers and his well-regarded Travis McGee books, John D. MacDonald was also quite a prolific writer of science fiction. He wrote three novels, and published dozens of stories in the pulp magazines.
I have a new book project I’m very excited about. It’s another one I’ve kind of been training for my entire life.
A little known, or at least often overlooked fact, is that back in the mid-1960s, Philip K. Dick wrote a children’s novel that was only published posthumously in the 1980s. I read it recently, and decided to share my thoughts on it.
Where does the time go? Spend some of it reading reviews, why don’t you?
Because you demanded it! (Well, a dozen of you or so did, anyway.)
The Shelf of Shame is out of control. I have all these cool new books to read that I planned to write about and, well, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. I can’t decide.
Then it dawned on me– YOU can decide.
