New Books: Two Classics, Two Recent
- Charles Dicken’s Oliver Twist. I just finished David Copperfield (a good [long] read) and felt like some more Dickens.
- Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. I added this one a while ago but figured I’d throw it in this batch since I never mentioned it. Should be interesting to learn about Lilliputians and Brobdingnagians.
- H. Beam Piper’s Little Fuzzy. Recently recommended by Cory Doctorow on Boing Boing. Sounds like nice light sci-fi.
- Robert J. Shea’s All Things are Light. I felt like some more entertaining historical(ish) fiction after the good Shike. Somehow I managed to read through Shike and never connect the Zinja to Illuminati until wikipedia pointed out that Shea’s books often center around secret societies. This one apparently involves secret groups in the Europe during the Crusades.
