By _____ on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 11:55 am:

    isn't it a tea?

By semillama on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 12:54 pm:

    oochild - things are going to get easier.

    oowarning, tiny oodiversion:

    Droopy, do you read sf/fantasy ever? If so, have you ever read R.A. MacAvoy's "Tea with the Black Dragon?" It's excellent.


By droop on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 01:45 pm:

    never read that book, margret. i've never been drawn to sf/fantasy for some reason. why, this one any good?

    (i've read "world of tiers", "lord of the rings", "hitchhiker's guide", and a collection of theodore sturgeon short stories over the course of my life, though; so it's not like i'm opposed to it or nuthin'.)

By drppoy on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 01:48 pm:

    just noticed you said it was excellent.


By Margret on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 01:57 pm:

    ooMacAvoy wrote "The Book Of Kells," (not the REAL one) which features many cool things you wouldn't think would be awesome (like time travel), but which ARE.
    So I bought Tea with the Black Dragon, and I favoured it mightily.

By oy prod on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 02:31 pm:

    hmm. agatha suggested a sci-fi type book called "slant" to me a while back. i'll have to pick up that book, the black dragon book, and a book called "the monster dogs" that looks interesting to me and make a sf-f month of it.

By agatha on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 04:32 pm:

    droop, i am sending you a cd soon. i decided that it was important that you have it, for some reason.

By semillama on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 06:12 pm:

    If you are going to read sci-fi, you should read anything by David Brin, but especially Startide Rising and Earth.

    If you are going to read fantasy, and especially if you absolutely love reading, and really especially if you like thick-ass books, go for Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Second ony to Tolkien, and a close second at that. His fantasy world is the most complex I've read.

    Also, Read Ursula K. Le Guin. She rocks.

By _____ on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 07:22 pm:

    Greg Bear whoops Brin's geeky ass!

    Anybody here ever finished an Olaf Stapledon Book?

By droopy on Wednesday, March 8, 2000 - 10:33 pm:

    gee [interj.] thanks, agatha.

    i'll take everone's book suggestions under consideration and then pick one at random.

By semillama on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 01:01 pm:

    Bear - get real.

    Now PDK, there's some good reading, especially if you need a book you can finish to last a trip or vacation, but still engage you.

By _____ on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 01:09 pm:

    yeah, i got your startide swingin', buddy.

By droopy on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 01:09 pm:

    i'm assuming you mean philip k. dick. i actually am curious to read some of his books. and another guy named samuel r. delaney, 'cause i read a memoir of his called "the motion of light in water" a few years back.

By Margret on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 01:39 pm:

    Samuel R. Delaney ROOLZ.

By patrick on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 01:48 pm:

    never made it through an entire Dick novel.....for no particular reasons....so...........well, all I can say if you liked Blade Runner and have the time, you would probably enjoy him.

By Rhiannon on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 01:59 pm:

    The only Dick novel I've ever read is "Valis." I read it for a Gnosticism class. I can't imagine being able to get through it without a working knowledge of Gnosticism. But if you possess that knowledge, it's a really neat book.

By Margret on Thursday, March 9, 2000 - 02:05 pm:

    Heresy (literally).

    Robert Jordan. I like him too. But when getting a new book in a series always have to reread the last couple to figure what the hell has happened.
