English version

26th October - 1st November

The end of week forty-four of the Reading Project. Here's what I've read this week:

Star Light, Star Bright: The great short fiction of Alfred Bester, volume 2 (Alfred Bester)

A very solid collection (as you'd expect from a "best of") from a very good author. The stories range across a wide scope of sci fi, and most have a fantastical quality, as well as a tone that sits somewhere between dark humour and wry stoicism. Quirky individuals are a recurring theme. Though the stories are mostly relatively hard science, all touch on the human element and some focus on that above all. Bester also throws in a couple of stories without any science at all, such as the titular Star Light, Star Bright and a rather cheery post-apocalyptic story.

バクマン v. 1 (大場 つぐみ, 小畑 健)

I didn't actually read this this week, but I did come to the conclusion that I actually read it in Japan last autumn, and can take it off the list and move on to volume 2.


I read 2 books this week, I had 73 last week, so 71 are left over. I have 21 books to read in 8 weeks.

That's a pleasant change, helped along by a very long train trip down to London and back.
