It’s Vintage Science Fiction Month!

Vintage Science Fiction Month takes place every January and is hosted by Andrea of the Little Red Reviewer and Jacob of RedStarReviews. They have a twitter account just for this: @VintageSciFi_.

Happy New Year, my hoopy froods! It’s January 1st, and that means Vintage Science Fiction Month has begun.

My first book of #VintageSciFi is PKD’s The Penultimate Truth, which was recommended to me by sj. I’m buddy-reading this one with my friend Will and hopefully sj (she’s the ultimate PKD fan of the group).

I’m not familiar with this one at all, so I’m really looking forward to reading it, and reading it with friends.

I also started the sixth Wheel of Time book last night just before I went to bed.

What is your first book of the year? Have you read The Penultimate Truth? Did you like it? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I am very curious about this event. I have read lots of science fiction–though not much lately. What constitutes Vintage? Are we talking Asimov and Heinlein, or something completely different?

  2. I’ll accept a 1/100th of an Altairian dollar for my thoughts! 😉 I tried out some of PKD’s short stories a few years ago, after following sj’s flow chart to the Minority Report collection. Not all of it was up my alley, but I was pleasantly chilled by “Service Call.” Who knew something called a swibble could be so sinister? 😱

    My first book of the year (currently reading) is The Deep, by Rivers Solomon.
