    Stranger In A Strange Land

    I just finished re-reading Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a strange land, one of my top favorites. After a couple of new books, I plan on re-reading Orson Scott Card's Enders game series. Sci-fi fantasy, oh how I love you.

    I Have A Bunch Of Them Waiting For Me

    Actually, this has been on-going for a number of years.  Back about 15 years ago I was in a book discussion group; when it was my turn to suggest a book for the next discussion I suggested "a favorite book from childhood." Of course, me, I could not select one favorite so I got...
