Some science fiction short stories
posted Dec.27.11 at 12:39 am


In case you missed it. The cats came with us for Christmas! They're getting along with Mika and Gonta. Uh, mostly. 

I'm working on a new project, so I've been reading a lot of science fiction short stories recently and got particularly interested in Arthur C. Clarke. His name was always on my radar, but I seem to have an on again off again relationship with sci-fi, so sometimes it takes me a little while. Anyway, here are some short stories you can read online:

Here's some Asimov:

And one by Vonnegut  - more commentary than anything else:

I've been reading China Mieville's Embassytown, and after that I'll probably read one of Clarke's books. Rendezvous with Rama's been suggested to me a few times, so I'll start there. 

Hope you enjoy some of those links! We'll catch you Thursday.
