Second book read during vacation. Ursula Le Guin's Rocannon's World. I wasn't as impressed by this as I was by The Left Hand of Darkness. No real theme to this book, other than fumbling to take the worst of fantasy (Tolkienesque feudalism) and apply it to science fiction. There are a race of lords, a race of elves, and a race of dwarves. Throw in a bit of telepathy and some off-world Star Trek technology, and you have a first SF novel.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
