Announcing Vintage Science Fiction Week #VintageSciFiMonth

As you may know, January is Vintage Science Fiction Month, a month-long event celebrating science fiction works published/produced before 1979. As always, the event is hosted by the wonderful Andrea from the blog The Little Red Reviewer.

I haven’t been able to post any Vintage Sci-Fi reviews or discussions yet so I have decided to dedicate next week to the event! ๐Ÿ˜€ For once, I have an actual schedule in mind (am I a real blogger now?!) and it is as follows:

  • Monday: A Vintage Sci-Fi Month introduction, Should We Read the SF Canon?
  • Tuesday: Book Review of The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
  • Wednesday: Book Review of The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • Thursday: TV Show Review of Star Trek the Original Series Season 2
  • Friday: Rant/DNF Review of Tau Zero by Poul Anderson
  • Saturday: Book Review of 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke
  • Sunday: Book Review The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

See you tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I read the Poul Anderson a few years ago and found it … interesting, though not hugely engaging. I see from my review (https://wp.me/s2oNj1-tauzero) that I found plenty significant in names, themes, and theoretical physics but, sadly, I was rather disengaged with the voyagers.

    These days I might shift around the emphasis in my review more but, frankly, I probably wouldn’t read it again: its intellectual approach is too dry for my present taste.

    1. I gave up pretty fast on Tau Zero because of the intense mysogyny and the awful characterization. I found the writing dry and the technology presented in this books hasn’t aged well so noting was able to hold my attention for long. I am going to check your review, I’m not against reading about this book as long as I don’t have to read the work itself! ๐Ÿ˜‰
