British and Zanny in Space
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

I would call this sci-fi on mushrooms. Funny, but very weird.

On a side note: I've never been afraid of rats, but I might reconsider.

24 in 48: Expectations and Intro Survey
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
The Gunslinger - Stephen King

 

This is the first time I join in a readathon! This 24 in 48 suits me.

 

I'm no a speed reader, so I reckon I'll finish my BLopoly Roll's at most, but we'll see. They are not that long.

 

Now, the survey:

 

1. Where in the world are you reading from this weekend? Argentina
2. Have you done the 24in48 readathon before? Nope, I'm a first timer.
3. Where did you hear about the readathon, if it is your first? Debbie posted about it, and I got curious.
4. What book are you most excited about reading this weekend? Since we are on the home-stretch of the BLopoly game, I'll go with my two picks for my double roll: HHGttG and "The Gunslinger". Both have been in my tbr for years, this game is really helping me with the clean up :D
5. Tell us something about yourself: Ermm... I'm a strange mix between a burrowing introvert and the dog from UP. That means that I tend to read while listening to music and drinking infusions, or hear audiobooks while cooking, cleaning and exercising. I can't do ONE thing at a time, which is why most people plain bore me, and I socialize best while dancing, or over board games. Not eating, though, unless you are very close to my heart, because I'm a huge and messy eater, and people's surprise annoys me into lectures about stupid expectations of dainty ladies, and feminist soapboxing that scares everyone... right.

 

*buckles down*

 

Starting the clock now.

„Galaxy” - klasyka amerykańskiej science-fiction dostępna za darmo

Archiwalne numery czasopisma „Galaxy Science Fiction” zostały udostępnione bezpłatnie w formie cyfrowej. Zebrano 355 zeszytów, które ukazały się od lat '50 do '70 XX wieku.

W „Galaxy” publikowali autorzy, którzy później stali się klasykami literatury fantastyczno-naukowej. W spisach treści pojawiają się takie nazwiska, jak: Frederik Pohl, Robert Sheckley, Robert Silverberg, Clifford D. Simak, Philip K. Dick, Fritz Leiber, Theodore Sturgeon czy Issac Asimov. Między innymi dzięki nim, było to przez wiele lat najpopularniejsze w Stanach czasopismo, publikujące twórczość amerykańskich pisarzy s-f. Otwarcie kilku losowo wybranych numerów, przekonało mnie także, ze łatwo trafić na znane (z polskich wydań) tytuły. Znajdziemy tu między innymi oryginały lub pierwowzory takich tekstów jak: „The Stars My Destination” oraz „The Demolished Man” Alfreda Bestera czy „Fireman” Ray'a Bradbury'ego.

 

Formatowanie EPUBów nie budzi zachwytu

 

Większość zeszytów dostępna jest w kilku formatach. Można pobrać je na przykład jako zgrubnie poskładane teksty w formatach e-bookowych - EPUB czy MOBI. Część jest tylko w postaci PDF, czy (jako skany) w komiksowym formacie CBZ. Publikacje można pobrać tutaj: „Galaxy Magazine”.

 

Pliki można pobrać w kilku różnych formatach (źródło: https://archive.org/)

 

 

Ech, gdyby tak wszystkie archiwalne numery „Fantastyki” albo nawet „Nowej Fantastyki”...

Blaze (Galaxy Alien Mail Order Brides #3) by Michelle M. Pillow Review
Blaze (Galaxy Alien Mail Order Brides) (Volume 3) - Michelle M. Pillow

Sev (aka Blaze) isn't looking for commitment, but there is no way in hell he's letting his brother go to Earth to search for a woman by himself. He's prepared to yank the idiot out of every jailhouse and ice cream parlor (don't ask) if he has to. It wouldn't be the first time. He can handle a good fight. But what this alpha isn't prepared for was the hardheaded beauty determined to follow him home.

Review

 

This is the last book about two Alien brothers and one cousin from a mining planet who come to Vegas the way we might pretending we are interested in a condo to get a vacation. In their case it is pretending to being looking for brides.

 

I love me some Science Fiction Romance Mail Order Mate fun and even though this one dodges the trope because they are pretending, it is fun romp.

 

This last book in features the most serious brother and is less slapstick. The romance is fast and the tale a bit short but it is a good ride.
