Seems like non-sf 60s is a bit of a black spot for me, I've only read the le guin, dick, & vonnegut. (i know the vonnegut is one of those lucky sf books to be embraced by people who normally turn their nose up at that kind of thing.) I started Ada or Ardor for ye olde ilx book club but didn't get far.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

The Unfortunates changed my life in a medium-sized kind of way, but notwithstanding that it’s really brilliant. I’d vote for it for more or less any year, except maybe ‘74.

I mean ‘78.

Ooh. I thought Le Guin was going to take this. Much as I like Vonnegut I'm a tad disappointed.

Well it was close!

Yes, very. I guess I should have voted twice.

I'm intrigued by what's coming up in '78 that Tim is so passionate about, but I guess I can wait a few more polls to find out.

it's actually the Panini sticker book for the Argentina World Cup

Yeah that’s why I mixed it up with 1974 but that one was West Germany of course.

(it's kind of odd because Iran, Peru, Hungary, Tunisia, Scotland even, all get their own pages, whilst England gets 4 stickers - Clements, Brooking, Hughes, Keegan)

England didn’t make it to that World Cup, probs had something to do with it.
