Adrian flipping more successfully (multiframe)Local time when he called was 2.30 a.m. and he was all-nighting to take his X-Rays to the course instructor at 8.30 a.m. He had been due to start a week’s supplementary instructor course on ‘park riding’ (jumps, half pipe): this will now have to be substantially postponed, and Adrian is off the slopes pretty much till season-end.
Surrounded by classics (The Idiot, Bonfire of the Vanities) he is pining for the fast food of classic science fiction. The dilemma - what to order for him from Amazon.ca? Should be good stuff, readable and not something we have at home already.
Here is what I chose.
- The Forever War - Joe Haldeman
- Gateway - Frederik Pohl
- Starship Troopers - Robert Heinlein
- Dune - Frank Herbert
