My old Windows computer died, or at least is dying. I’m afraid to turn it back on in case I need to recover something else from it before its last gasps. In the meantime, I have a brand new Mac and almost no idea how to use it.

I bought the book Switching to the Mac, the Missing Manual (pictured below). Until I figure out how to use my computer, I’m on hold on my reviews. Yikes! This isn’t as easy as I thought it would be! I hope to be back on track soon, but…


(This picture/link took several tries to turn out like I wanted. Lots to learn. Sigh.)


who says which are the best 100 science fiction novels ever written?

Several months ago I decided to sample the best science fiction out there. You can read who I am on my About Me page. As far as why I decided to do this, you can read that on my Home page.

At first, I just found a list and started to read. What an adventure it turned out to be!

I soon realized others might enjoy sharing this project with me. Hence this website, and the soon-to-be-posted Youtube video reviews of each book.

First, though, I needed to know if I did indeed have a list of the best 100 science fiction novels. I discovered there’s not much agreement on which books are best. However, eventually, I compiled the names of 335 books various writers, reviewers and editors familiar with the field thought were worthy. 

I’ve chosen 100 based on how many lists the books appeared on and where they appeared on two particular lists. I’ll share my sources in the future. In fact I’ll share the names of all 335 books.

In the meantime, enjoy this track of discovery with me, and let me know if you think I’ve missed any important books. The entire list is here:
