“Though I think she tends to skate around the edge of what America really died of.”

Via Pharyngula comes another of those mark the ones you’ve read in bold memes.
As this one is based on someone’s version of the The Most Significant SF & Fantasy Books of the Last 50 Years, 1953-2002 and as I read lots of SF I’ll participate.
The list is below the fold and 40 of the 50 are bolded.
Camouflage, Joe Haldeman (Analog; Ace Books)
“Magic for Beginners”, Kelly Link (Magic for Beginners Small Beer Press; F&SF Sep 2005)
“The Faery Handbag”, Kelly Link (The Faery Reel Viking; ed. Ellen Datlow & Terri Windling)
“I Live With You”, Carol Emshwiller (F&SF Mar 2005)
Serenity, Joss Whedon
ANDRE NORTON AWARD
Valiant: A Modern Tale of Faerie, Holly Black (Simon & Schuster)
As previously announced, Harlan Ellison was presented the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award, and William F. Nolan was named Author Emeritus. Connie Willis was Toastmaster.
For a while I read every bit of Haldeman I could get my hands on and I’ll be headinng to the bookstore at lunch time today to pick up a copy of this one.
Harlan Ellison, in the picture on the Locus site (link above), definitely looks like he’s gone a bit past emeritus.
Yes! Serenity, my favorite movie of 2005 received the Nebula for best script!
Via Amy Sturgis at Liberty & Power. She has a couple link about why some of you might care that Serenity is a winner. Warning: the movie review she links to is written by Orson Scott Card whose Ender’s Game series is one I still reread but whose views on social issues and politics are pretty broken.
Here is a nice long trailer for Superman Returns….opens this summer.
