I grabbed William Gibson's Neuromancer,Joe Haldeman's The Forever War, and Christopher Priest's Inverted World. Over the past few years reading has really become "work" for me. I think that happens to all people who aspire to write books. If I read five books, I generally only feel like I'm having fun with one of those. I'm OK with that, but I think it's good to stay in touch with why i got into this business to begin with.
So I'm in on Inverted World, and I'm enjoying myself. Which is really what it ultimately must be about. More later.
