  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 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. whbeebe – Somewhere in the Orion Arm – I am a retired engineer who writes about photography, my pets, software development, computer languages, operating systems, embedded computers like the Jetson Nano, Raspberry Pi, Adafruit and Arduino devices, and whatever else may catch my interest.

    Forever On

  9. mknelson101 – An ardent Oregon native plant restoration gardener, I grew up in the woods east of Portland and spent my summers camping and working through the Camp Fire organization. WoHeLo! They taught me not to roast food on Cascara sticks and where to look for huckleberries. And a lot of valuable skills that kept me alive while hiking through the Northwest woods. I volunteer as a Certifier for Backyard Habitats and am happiest getting my hands in the soil. Favorite quote: " ...and all this depends on two inches of top soil and fact that it rains." Anon.

    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….

  10. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    Now and then we time travel. Interesting title.

  11. 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.

  12. “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).
