What a lovely moment. It’s pouring rain, finally, after a hot sweltering summer. I picked out some treasures from the library and from the used bookstore. With a Fancy Coffee, I get to sit outside and enjoy the rain and new books.
One that I picked out is by Sherri S. Tepper, The Fresco.
Sherri S. Tepper is an author that was recommended to me a decade ago by a biologist I worked for while in Colorado, serving an internship for the Bureau of Reclamation. That was the summer of the Hayman fire…but I digress into waddling memories.
Anyways, here is an SF author, recommended by this biologist that I respect and admire, doing work that I feel is important and meaningful, and I am only now getting around to reading this author. These things clangorous around in my head for decades, you know?
What authors have you had recommended to you by people in a position of respect in your life? Have you gone on to read those?
Be sure to join us for our Books That I’ve Been Meaning to Get To Party, next weekend.
