Hugo and Nebula Award-Winning Science Fiction Writer

Summer reading

by Rob - June 30th, 2008.
Filed under: Uncategorized. is having a store-wide sale (that ends today) so I decided to stock up on ebooks for the summer. Here’s what I just bought:


  • The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
  • Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
  • The Stand: The Complete and Uncut Edition by Stephen King
  • Doctor Strangelove, or Red Alert by Peter Bryant
  • Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick


  • Mastering The Business of Writing by Richard Curtis
  • This Business of Publishing by Richard Curtis
  • Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar…: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes by Daniel Klein
  • Present at the Future: From Evolution to Nanotechnology, Candid and Controversial Conversations on Science and Nature by Ira Flatow

(In Canadian schools, we don’t do much Steinbeck, and so I have to confess to never having read him. My friend Richard Curtis was my first literary agent, and is the best writer of articles about the business of publishing there is. Ira Flatow hosts NPR’s Science Friday, on which I was once a guest for a panel discussion along with Leonard Nimoy.)
