  1. That reminds me – I have to buy a copy of Sleeping Giants. I borrowed it from the library but I need a copy of mine very own.

  2. I was just rereading Nebula Award Stories Number Two – a terrific collection, for the most part – and I really should check out some of the Nebula anthologies from the intervening fifty years.

  3. Sleeping Giants and Waking Gods – two books in a series perchance?
    OK, I looked them up and yes they are.
    Will I buy? Well, seeing as Anne above has recommended I’ll just have to won’t I.

  4. I have Sleeping Giants in my queue of ebooks to read. Which I need to do soon as we’re creeping up on the point where BSFS decides on the finalists for the Compton Crook Award.

  5. I’ve really enjoyed Myke Cole’s other works but I’m really curious about The Fractured Girl from Tor.com. I’ve seen almost no information about what the stories in this series are about or when they will be published. It’s nice to see that the galley is out and some reviews will be posted soon.

  6. Here at the Library, we sometimes play a game which might be called “Title Roulette” Take any random stack and string the titles together. Waking Gods and Sleeping Giants makes a good start. I always try to present the cover art too, that’s usually what grabs me in the first place. Happy to be here. Bruce

  7. The Nebula Awards showcase looks promising as it’ll give a nice snapshot of what’s going on in SF. The Butler adaptation intrigues because I loved the original novel. But the most intriguing title is “Now And Then We Time Travel.”

  8. Sleeping Giants. That book staiyed with me and gave me a great time way from the insanity….mine and other peoples.
    Really, a title alone that gets you involved. What giants? Why sleeping? Will they wake up? Do we want them to wake up?
    Also, the beginning narrative did not head off to stale story line territory. Pretty fresh!
    In factness, gonna go read it again right now. Especially right now.
    Then I will need Waking Gods….

  9. Oooh, Nebula Awards, yes, must order.
    @gettacook and others, Nebulas 28-31 (1994-1997) are available as PrintOnDemand via BookDepository, 2011 to date are in print too.

  10. “Now and then we time travel”. I almost don’t want to google it because it might spoil what is a wonderful title.

    P.S. Which authors have the most fascinating story titles? For me, you *still* can’t beat Cordwainer Smith’s (and he was dead nearly 20 years before I read any of them).
