I love receiving books - any books - from relatives and today I received a phone call from Mum who bought some books at a club she attends last night for next to nothing. I'm thrilled to find she picked up books that I've been looking at to read lately; and wanting to read as well.
The Pilgrimage' by Paulo Coelho was one book I've wanted to read for a while; and now I own it, I can delve into its pages like I did 'The Alchemist' and enjoy his poetic writings. Then, there's 'Star-Begotten' by H.G. Wells. This is one book I haven't heard much about, however, I have read 'War of the Worlds' and loved it; and did wish to read more of his works. I do look forward to reading this one as well.
There are titles and authors I haven't heard of, however, such as 'The Martian Inca' by Ian Watson, 'The Exile Waiting' by Vonda N. McIntyre, 'The Pastel City' by M. John Harrison and 'Shockwave Rider' by John Brunner. And even though these authors are unfamiliar, I will read them to see how they write; and find out if they have any other works out there I can read and review for you all.There is another sci-fi book in the pile I received. It's a very modern 'X-Files' book and I do look forward to looking into it. A lot of these books are normally taken from the shows or they're stories about how the shows were written; so it should be a good book to have a look at. Until my next post, happy reading!
