Let's see if I can finish these books before my last undergrad semester begins...

 

...I've just started The Power of Myth and I'm restraining myself from quoting. I can't wait to read Hero of a Thousand Faces.

 

I grabbed The Future is Japanese because of the anthology's theme. I'm also a fan of Catherynne Valente's and Ken Liu's writing.

 

I picked up Hyperspace because it mentioned parallel universes. Michio Kaku is on my must-read list for non-fiction.

 

Reload: Rethinking Women + Cyberculture. This one contains critical commentary on gender and sci fi. The collection also includes Feminist cyberpunk short stories by writers I want to check out. E.g. Octavia E. Butler, Anne McCaffrey & Alice B. Sheldon - alias - James Tiptree Jr. 

 

I loved Winter of Fire by Sherryl Jordan so I'm curious to see what her YA sci-fi is like in The Juniper Game.

 

I wonder if Palm of the Hand Stories will be on my Japanese Lit. list next semester.
