Don’t worry, I promise it will be a fun list.
Hey, remember when you were a kid in school and they’d give you a Summer reading list? You know, those painful “classics” that we were forced to read because they were supposed be so good, but were really terrible to read because of the archaic language and tired, dusty old plots?
Well, these are nothing like that.
One of my favorite magazines, Wired, has put together a list of new-ish science-fiction and fantasy reading for your Summer vacation. While I have to admit that I haven’t actually read any of these books yet, I can vouch for the authors who are all pretty much the latest thing in science-fiction. (And, in some cases, the latest thing for the second or third time in their, hopefully, very long careers.)
So, if you manage to take some time off this Summer, grab one of these and give them a try!
