rediscovered pleasure

a friend from work recently loaned me a book -- year's best sf 4. it's the 1999 edition of a yearly anthology of published science fiction short stories/novels. he recommended it because of ted chiang's "story of your life."

it's been a long time since i've read sci-fi. i read blogs. i read magazines. i read children's books. when i want to read an adult book, i dive into hercule poirot mysteries and meander through dick francis thrillers. in and out in two hours. no subtlety. no nuance. (if there's any, well, i ignore it for the familiar idiosyncrasies and beloved locales.)

this story was amazing -- i loved it. and many of the stories were entertaining. thanks, my friend. i owe you one.
