T is for Taking Time and Other Science Fiction Stories + That Sadie Thing And Other Stories + The 13th Floor Complete Collection

T -2016Welcome to the annual A to Z Challenge.

My theme: showcasing bloggers books, novellas, short story collections, poetry collections and some non-fiction books. The letters of the alphabet will correspond with the book title. I’ll be posting a link to my review of each book. I also have two questions for the author, just to spice things up a little.

Hopefully, visitors to my blog will be able to increase their reading lists and also get ideas for their wish lists.

    I see more books by people I’m connected with online! Hurray for that. You’re great for showcasing authors and their books during this challenge. It’s such a generous theme.

    I don’t read much sci-fi or paranormal–some but not much. I think the name of my autobiography would be One More Thing because I’m always adding another thought.

    My second novel (as yet unpublished, representation please? Haha) is a science fictionesque novel. I was surprised I could even attempt to write that way. I think the autobiography of my life might be titled, “A series of almosts” even though almosts isn’t a word.

    Once again, you have presented books that I didn’t know about. -:) My list keep growing. Now I need to start reading.

    For me I like contemporary fiction. The short story collection looks good. Usually publishers and agents are more interested if there is some theme that runs through the collection. Looks like the writer was looking at relationships. Something I write about a lot.

    I know all three of those authors! And have all of their books. Read the first story in Christine’s – it’s great.

    I do love science fiction and it is my favorite genre of TV shows. The geekier the better.

    I love shorts!! In any genre!

    My autobiography would be titled ‘Hang On, Let Me Just Finish The Para’

    You’ve totally aced this challenge, Michelle! Kudos!

    sci/fi really isnt my thing, but I will read it from time to time. I love a good mystery.

    I have attempted science fiction and would be willing to try writing more. I like Ellie’s autobiography title. I did not manage this week well at all 🙁 I barely made it to the people who visited me, but I’m hoping to make up for it this weekend.

    Great spotlight, Michelle.
    I don’t read very much sci-fi and fantasy, but I did read The Night Circus recently and loved it. Had no problem suspending disbelief. By habit, I reach for thrillers/mysteries, but if a book pulls me in, the genre is not so important.

    Another great group of authors! My TBR pile is miles high already, and I don’t see it shrinking any time soon. I add them faster than I can read them. So many great books, so little time.

  15. Charlotte on April 24, 2016 at 8:47 am

    What a wonderful collection of books, the reviews are excellent, concise but enthusiastic. You’ve certainly caught my interest!
    Great A to Z challenge!

    Hi Michelle – I don’t read Science Fiction … but probably should – and with so many blogging authors around it’s definitely a good entree … I’ve got some of these and read them – and they make a fascinating imaginative read … cheers Hilary

    I prefer combining science with the supernatural as they both exist in reality one on the left side of the equal sign in E=MC2 and the other on the right.

    I’m exploring different types of dreams and their meanings.

    Hi Michelle. ‘Felix was here’ would be a great place to start for those who don’t read sci-fi, according to the reviews…
