I ordered the first book off my belated education list today. I decided to start with Connie Willis, at the suggestion of one of my blog’s long-time followers, and because I like time travel. It should be here at the end of this week or the beginning of next. I decided to go with a hard copy this time. It’s possible the e-reader thing is wearing off. **reaches for e-reader** Maybe not.
I may go back to reading that 1/2 I have left over from earlier. I can’t remember why I quit reading, and I remember being fairly in awe of the book for at least part of the thing. It could be a work-sleep related abandonment, so we’ll give that another chance. I think I’ll have to start over from the beginning, though.
Then, the new question I’ve come up with is this…
If you pull an idea for a short story out of a short conversation (one with a non-writer, at that!) and you’re interested in that person’s opinion of the story, how do you bring it up? It’s not someone I know well… or honestly, at all. Or do you? I doubt being turned into science fiction is a high priority for the other person.
