Science Fiction 20 – Walter M Miller Jr, Naomi Mitchison & Michael Moorcock

Moving right along – another entry in the continuing unveiling of my book collection.

First up, the classic Science Fiction novel, A Canticle for Leibowitz, a great post apocalypse novel by Walter M Miller Jr. There was sequel, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman, which I didn’t like at all and conveniently lost when I loaned it to a friend. I can’t remember if I’ve ever read the stories in The Best of Walter M Miller Jr, but there it is in my library.

Likewise with Naomi Mitchison’s Memoirs of a Spacewoman – something of a rarity I imagine these days.


And on to Michael Moorcock

I have a small collection of some of his books, never really getting into to his Elric and Jerry Cornelius series. I do however have a complete collection of the Dancers At The End of Time trilogy...
