1. Helliconia Spring - Brian W. Aldiss
2. The Warrior's Apprentice - Lois McMaster Bujold
3. Dawn - Octavia Butler
4. Consider Phlebas - Iain M. Banks
5. Shards of Honour - Lois McMaster Bujold
So, five books read in all. A mixed bag, one very classic read in Helliconia Spring, a new space opera series started in the two Miles Vorkosigan books, a book by Octavia Butler at long last and a complicated, very interesting read in Consider Phlebas by Iain M. Banks. I would call that a successful Sci-fi Experience this time around and I'm very pleased with the way it went. The other thing that pleases me is that all five books were owned by me, so that's five books off the tbr mountain!
Hard to choose a favourite as they were all rather good. But the book that edges ever so slightly ahead is Helliconia Spring as it was just so darn good. I meant to read its sequel, Helliconia Summer, for the Experience too but have not managed it. No matter, I plan to carry on reading science-fiction this year and am hoping to get to that book later this month.
Many thanks to Carl for once again hosting his Science-Fiction Experience, it really is very much appreciated.
