89 CLASSIC SF: Hugo winner STAND ON ZANZIBAR - John Brunner
Stand on zanzibar
Judith Merrill called Stand On Zanzibar “the first true SF novel”, and in his introduction to the 2011 edition Bruce Sterling calls parts “radically antinovelistic” and the book in general a “unique formal achievement”. Let me assure you, dear reader, such hyperbole statements are bollocks. I’ve written about some SF-readers’ real literature frustration before, and I won’t repeat all that here. It seems that some people still need to be told that what they are reading is really True Art, and rea read more

80 Eternamente: Luna: Wolf Moon by Ian McDonald
Wolfmoon us
