In our efforts to suggest titles for your CovidDays reading, here are three more books you may not have considered, along with our customarily pithy three word teasers:
Overlooked: The Book of Skulls by Robert Silverberg (1972) – disturbing, absorbing, unique.
Underrated: Ubik, by Philip K. Dick (1969) – quirky, entertaining, phildickian.
Forgotten: Synners by Pat Cadigan (1991) – punchy, dense, trenchant.
To help everyone find some good SF&F reads in these straitened times, the Aurealis editors will be offering an irregular series of ‘Overlooked, Underrated and Forgotten’ titles for your attention.
Here are our three for today:
Overlooked – Replay by Ken Grimwood (1986). Poignant, thought-provoking, life-changing.
Underrated – The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers ( 1983). Rollicking, twisty, entertaining.
Forgotten – The Long Tomorrow by Leigh Brackett ( 1955). Moving, powerful, sensitive.
Contributions welcome for the threefold ‘Overlooked, Underrated and Forgotten’ list – and don’t forget your three word teasers!
