Over on SF Signal they posted an 8 Questions about Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Books a little while ago. It looked like fun, Gentle Reader, I thought I would take a run at it myself.
- The first science fiction, fantasy or horror book I ever read was:
Does Harold and the Purple Crayon count? If not then it was The Water-Babies or the Borrowers or Tom’s Midnight Garden? If those don’t count either, then probably The Hobbit.
- The last science fiction, fantasy or horror book I read that I’d put in my “Top 20″ list is:
Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith. (To be fair, top 20 is hard for me to calculate but I would say I put it in “one of my Top 20 lists” which is still a big deal for someone like me who is a voracious yet unbelievably picky reader.) I read it about a year ago as an ebook and just purchased it in print for my permanent collection and reread.
- The last science fiction, fantasy or horror book I couldn’t finish was:
The Coldest Girl In Coldtown by Holly Black. Sorry, too creepy for my taste.
- A science fiction, fantasy or horror author whose work I cannot get enough of is:
- A science fiction, fantasy or horror author I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t read yet is:
- A science fiction, fantasy or horror book I would recommend to someone who hasn’t read sf/f/h is…
Always dependent on what they normally read. Romance reader? Warprize. History buff? Lord of Two Lands. Literary? Gate to Women’s Country. Military? Valor’s Choice
- A science fiction, fantasy or horror book that’s terribly underrated is:
Jasper Fforde’s The Eyre Affiare.
- A science fiction, fantasy or horror book that’s terribly overrated is:
Most novel length stuff by Asimov, his shorts are vastly superior.
