Well, some of us missed a lot of it the first time around because we were reading other stuff, so yes, I'm reading it now.

50s SF, 40s SF, 30s SF, and on the other side of the pendulum, 60s SF, 70s SF, and 80s SF. Most of the stuff published today is either too wordy or just doesn't grab me.

I do. Fortunately there was quite a lot of it.

Richard Robinson said...

I did then, I do now. Ya wanna make sumpin' of it?

Quite a list of books, actually. Although it doesn't include one of my favorite books by Ike...The Gods Themselves...or maybe my favorite by Bradbury...Something Wicked This Way Comes...

I wasn't around when it first came out, being born in the mid-60's, but read it voraciously in my teen years and have now circled back to it. Reason: "sense of wonder" and the belief that the future of the fifties was better than the future (hopefully not really) of the now.
