I appreciate your candid reviews. One of them, for [The Number of the Beast], indicates you are familiar with Rice Burroughs's John Carter of Mars series. I've thought about getting the series on my e-reader and reading the first entry to my son, and then showing him the movie. How have those books aged? Might a contemporary ten-year old dismiss them as ridiculous?
Good morning!
What can I do for you this morning?
I'm slowly adding all my books into librarything - only done part of ADF. Yes, I've got and have read Icerigger and Mission to Moulokin (but they're boxed up - never enough shelf space!), and I heartily recommend the Flinx of the Commonwealth books.
Addict, according to wikipedia, yeah: THE METAL MONSTER (1920), MOON POOL (1919).
Good suggestions--though, METAL MONSTERS, an early one, did seem a little dense, prose-wise. Let me know what you think!
Hello, sf_addict,
I owe everything I am and will be to Clarke.
I like your profile picture.
If you are talking to Dave, tell him I miss him. It is so lonely out here.
I used to read Beano and Dandy if I couldn't find any other comics to read, but I was more into Marvel and 2000AD.
Not particularly. Not even sure what one is, in terms of picking it out of a plant line-up. My name is an homage to an on-line parody that featured a ficus.

Just listed The Chalk Giants by Keith Roberts and Riverworld and Other Stories by Philip José Farmer and they were requested almost immediately, which surprised me. Have to build up my points quickly because someone is offering bundles of 2000ad comics and I want to nab them all before someone else does.
I've been doing a bit of BookMooching again recently, but most of my inventory went to a charity shop when I moved house. I haven't got much left to offer and I'm nearly out of points!
Cheers for that, I'm actually notorius for never reading the prologue. They usually aren't necessary imho but thanks for the warning!
Hiya, yep that's me!
Hi Larry! Sorry I didn't automatically accept your friend invitation, but I didn't realise it was you. How are you? Still BookMooching?
Any other SF addicts in the house?
