Science Fiction 33 – A E Van Vogt & Joan Vinge

Can’t say I’ve read all that much Van Vogt but I seem to have an elderly edition of The Weapon Shops of Isher.

As for Joan Vinge, she won the Hugo and Nebula awards for her novel The Snow Queen, a retelling of the fairytale set in the far future. I recently reread this book along with its sequels, World’s End and The Summer Queen and found them as enthralling as the first time I read them.
