Los Angeles 2 (Formerly Saddlebrook)

There are no surprises at all in the first part of this book. But don't think for a moment that Brackett's poetic power is all that redeems it. AJ. Budrys said "Always ask Why are they telling us this?" 


Classics of SF at Loscon 47 By John Hertz: We'll discuss three Classics of Science Fiction at Loscon XLVII, one discussion each. Come to as many as you like. You'll be welcome to join in. Our working definition is "A classic is a work that survives its own time. After the currents which might have sustained It have changed, it remains, and is seen to be worthwhile for itself." If you have a better definition, bring it. Each of the three is famous in a different way. Each may be more interesting now than when first published. Have you read them? Have you re-read them?
