Happy to see at least two other people itt have read "Alphabetical Africa"!

Are Animated Dads Getting Hotter? (Tom D.), Thursday, 10 June 2021 07:59 (five months ago) link

I read it just recently - I enjoyed it enough to want to read more abish but emil.y is otm about the colonialist aspect (& some other stuff that is a bit iffy)

This should prob be dhalgren just over carrington & le carré but voting for the last days of Louisiana red as I haven’t voted for Reed yet, it’s as good as mumbo jumbo & I read it first

Can I honestly say it is as good a novel as The Dispossessed? I cannot. But it's so weird and individual and I'm so glad it exists!

Wait Carrie shutout, are you kidding me??? That's a grave injustice.

Ditto The Forever War, pretty major year for SF though

Would watch a 1974 in lit doc or book like they do with years in music.

Wherein We Elect Our Favourite Novels of 1975

Damn, I had a suspicion that Dhalgren would win this despite more talk about Carrington. Maybe I'll get round to reading it sometime, then.
