Weekend Update 2/5/2011

Posted on the 05 February 2011 by Jimblack78
This was a week where real life interfered with my blogging time.  Sometimes situations at work keep me from writing.  Next week I will be back to a regular schedule and the blog posts will return.
New Additions to My Library
Weekend Update 2/5/2011
The Best of Pamela Sargent
 Pamela Sargent is one of the authors who I do not remember reading.  I have definitely heard of her but somehow missed out on her stories.  This looked like a good place to start.  And the fact that Michael Bishop did the foreward did not hurt.  The stories appeared from 1971 through 1984.
Weekend Update 2/5/2011Chrysalis #1 edited by Roy Torgeson
 The first volume in one of my favorite anthology series.  It includes stories by Harlan Ellison, Theodore Sturgeon, Spider Robinson, Richard A. Lupoff, Elizabeth A. Lynn, Charles L. Grant, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and Thomas F. Monteleone.
The cover for this collection is by Thomas Barber.  The style and design of the ship reminds me of the art of John Schoenherr.
