What I've Read:
Obasan by Joy Kogawa
This is the story of a family of Japanese Canadians set during World War II. It's a damning look at the shameful treatment of Canadian citizens during wartime. I was aware of some of what happened but not nearly enough. It's a necessary and difficult story, beautifully told.
The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag By Robert A. Heinlein
An uneven short story collection. I'd recommend this only because of three stories which I'm sure you can find in another larger collection.
The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag was a decent read.I'd pretty much forgotten this one, so I was engaged in finding out what happened.
The Man Who Traveled in Elephants I have loved since I first read it. It's sentimental and whimsical and full of heart.
'--All You Zombies--' is a nifty time travel story playing with the chicken or the egg question.
I didn't get far with They.
Our Fair City is another favourite. I read it long before I encountered The Man Who and so when I tried to find Our Fair City again, never considered Heinlein as the author. It was years before I stumbled across it again and I was glad when I did. Kitten stays with you, long after many other more worthy characters are forgotten.
I finished '--And He Built a Crooked House--' , but did not enjoy it.
What I'm Reading
Tomorrow x 4
A collection of four science fiction novellas edited by Damon Knight.
I've only finished one which was okay, not great, but okay. The one I'm reading now seems promising. Let you know when I finish.
What I'll Read Next
I have a pile of ancient paperbacks sorted to read before I send them off to their next home or decide to keep. They are all SF and this stack has a bunch of RAH juveniles in it. I havent read any of these in decades so it'll be interesting to see how they stack up now.
Fannish Meta: The Fading Diversity Of Lost Girl
As someone who has enjoyed the show from it's first episode, I have to agree with many of the points made here.
1. There is actually a George Mason University.
2. The second viewing of Haven is not going to be any slower or more thoughtful than the first. I'm still all about the happy.
3. Continuum ( Casting spoiler )
