Anything you think should be nominated for a Hugo? We'd love to read it!
Feel free to pick one or two more expensive books or a few cheaper ones. (Novellas/novelettes are fine as well.) We're not picky!
Don't get this!
No graphic novels, please! I run a comic shop, so I have access to literally everything that is published by a major publisher.
I'd prefer books that aren't in my library because this will be my copy. :) But feel free to let me know books from my library that you would have chosen, and I'll add them to our queue.
ryvre's Secret Santa is misskitty17. Help misskitty17 pick the right book.
linggeek: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo could be a great historical fiction pick for a book club. Lots of directions a conversation should go. (Thu, 29 Nov 2018 12:42:17 -0500)
Kanst: Doomsday Book, and To Say Nothing of the Dog, both by Connie Willis, are British historical fictons by way of time travel. Doomsday Book is set during the Black Plague, and women's roles in that society feature heavily, while To Say Nothing of the Dog is far more lighthearted and set in the Edwardian era. Doomsday's very somber, while Nothing is a comedy of errors. They also take place in the same universe, but it's not really a series per se; either of these could be read first without spoiling or missing anything. (Thu, 29 Nov 2018 13:36:19 -0500)
WeeTurtle: My library comparison suggests [Neuromancer] by William Gibson. Cyberpunk, and it did win Hugo. (Sun, 02 Dec 2018 01:45:45 -0500)
ejmam: Jade City, by Fonda Lee is long but good. I found Jo Walton's My Real Children fascinating and great for discussion. (Sun, 02 Dec 2018 03:05:32 -0500)
