Hugo Novellas

Name: R.Wilder Source: unca20080731.htm I've read all the novellas, and everyone one of them are fantastic. The Connie Willis is a fun read, a great Christmas story, but a bit light weight in comparison to the others. The Rusch is good cracking adventure, the Shepard is a nicely spooky modern fanta...

The new HP rocked, in a kinda goth way. Sent a mom and her 7 yr old scurrying after the initital fifteen minutes. The creators streamlined the novel well. I like that the tone of the movies has evolved towards darkness.

Yeah, it's not completely original, being a descendent of cyberpunk crossed with the hard-boiled tradition of Hammett/Chandler, especially the latter (in how the novel is structured), but it's a cracking good...
