A mixed bag this time. I got these three science fiction novels from Paperback BookSwap, which, by the way, started charging 49 cents per book ordered as of the middle of February. Timothy Zahn is a SF writer whose work on Star Wars novels and other books I’ve enjoyed, so I thought I’d give these a try.
Conquerors’ Pride by Timothy Zahn [Bantam Books 1994 paperback, used]
Conquerors’ Heritage by Timothy Zahn [Bantam Books 1995 paperback, used]
Conquerors’ Legacy by Timothy Zahn [Bantam Books 1997 paperback, used] The three make up “The Conqueror’s Saga”. Here’s a summary from Wikipedia:
“Set in a space opera future, the trilogy is concerned with a failed first contact that leads to an interstellar war between humanity and an alien race, the Zhirrzh (nicknamed by humans The Conquerors). Meanwhile, other alien races try to take advantage of the conflict between the two powers.”
Between You And Me by Mart Norris [W.W. Norton & Company, ebook] – autobiography. After Jeff Meyerson sent a link and I read the article in the NYTBR and had to get this. Yes, I bought an ebook that cost more than $3. I might have been able to get it from the library in a month or so but was impatient. Bad me. I’ve read about 40 pages.
