Gaps in My Education

I spend far too much time on the internet. It’s one of my favorite places to spend a few extra minutes–or hours. And the kind of really random information I find there makes it all worthwhile.

So, I was looking for a new book. And I tracked down a list of books that have won both the Hugo and the Nebula:

  • Dune by Frank Herbert (On my reader.)
  •  The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • Ringworld by Larry Niven (Paperback)
  • The Gods Themselves by Isaac Asimov
  • Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke
  • The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
  • Gateway by Frederik Pohl
  • Dreamsnake by Vonda McIntyre
  • The Fountains of Paradise by Arthur C. Clarke
  • Startide Rising by David Brin
  • Neuromancer by William Gibson
  • Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card (Finished)
  • Speaker for the Dead by Orson Scott Card (Finished)
  • Doomsday Book by Connie Willis (Finished! I cried like a baby.)
  • Forever Peace by Joe Haldeman
  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Right around 50% before… life)
  • Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon
  • The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
  • Blackout/All Clear by Connie Willis
  • Among Others by Jo Walton
  • Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie (on reader)

And it turns out I’ve read about two and a half (okay, a third) of them. So I’m going to work on that.

Plus or minus the ones that are in the middle of their series, that shouldn’t take longer than fifty or sixty years.

Any thoughts on where to start?

    Doesn’t matter where you start as long as you do. You’ve already started, though, so no worries. I’ve only read two. I think I’ll start with Ursula. :0)

    I love Connie Willis, if you haven’t done the two books by her. I actually love most To Say Nothing Of The Dog, though I’m not sure if it’s there. 😉

    I love Ender’s Game! If you haven’t read the initial three book series I suggest it! Good luck!
