The list of books below were read between 1988 and 1995, rated at that time, but not reviewed. Eventually, I may get around to re- reading them -definitely for the good ones!
The ratings in this section may not be too accurate, as the rating system has been changed, and my tastes and maturity have evolved since I read most of these books.
This is the only Crichton book I've read. It was much better than the movie it spawned, including a much spookier SF ending.
PHILIP K. DICK
This guy writes some really strange science fiction stuff -but strangely enjoyable, too!
The future of the internet -connecting through jacks in our heads, and to each other -is shown eerily in this science fiction book.
DAVID HARTWELL, CLIFTON FADIMAN
Before I got tired of short stories, there was this gigantic book!
MICHAEL P. KUBE-MCDOWELL
THE TRIGON DISUNITY
I was disappointed by the first book in this SF trilogy, not realizing it was a trilogy. If I could find it again (called Emprise), I think I would enjoy it better now. The rest of the books were more to my liking.
Another author of strange science fiction, on the level of Philip K. Dick.
Another classic that I did not really enjoy. I just hate it when there is no recourse, and the bad guy wins!
