Too interesting things about Nero Wolfe. My first exposure to him was actually a tribute story of sorts in Analog SF/SF (with an A.I. in Nero's place). I finally picked up a copy at a library sale after hearing more about him from other people. Oddly enough, it was the one book where Wolfe actually felt the need to leave his house. I was stunned.
Since I will be spending the weekend at a Science Fiction convention (one of the more literary-minded ones, no less), would there be any objection to discussing science fiction next week?
We can leave fantasy out of it. That was discussed a couple of weeks ago.
I was also thinking that sometime in April or May (NOTE: I said April or May, not *right now*), we can try to assemble a list of specific books for a sort of Summer Reading Program. At that point we'll be able to talk about specific things.
So far, each week has consisted primarily of lists of authors, lists of books, a few responses to those and a bunch of "add me to the ping list" messages, but not a lot of discussion on any particular book (or even genre). On the other hand, a couple of Harry Potter threads generated a few hundred responses last week. So I'm thinking we'll have to, at some point, though not right this minute, move on to specific books.
