The 2014 Sci-Fi Experience

2014 Sci-Fi ExperienceHosted by Carl @ Stainless Steel Droppings

I would love it if you would consider joining us to read and/or view some science fiction over the next few months. There are no numbers of things you are required to read or view. This is not a challenge, just an opportunity to experience the wonder of science fiction.

For the last two years I’ve wanted to take part in the Sci-Fi Experience, but I’ve always had other books heaped on the TBR pile that weren’t sci-fi. (Not like Readers Imbibing Peril. R.I.P. is easy. I seem to imbibe peril on a regular basis!) Well, it’s that time again, although a little earlier than I expected, and my TBR stack is full of history, Christmas, and Wilke Collins. Perhaps an ill-conceived notion on my part, but I’m proclaiming my participation.

Very tentative list:

  • Doctor Who Short Trips: The History of ChristmasSome Doctor Who fiction. Chirstmas-y Doctor Who fiction. (Almost a certainty. I’m in a Who mood.)
  • The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
  • Infernal Devices by K.W. Jeter
  • In the Company of Thieves by Kage Baker (maybe)
  • Whom the Gods Would Destroy by Brian Hodge (maybe)
  • Something vintage off the shelf. (likely)


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. I read In the Garden of Eden by Kage Baker a few months ago, and I loved it. I keep meaning to read more in this series. I keep meaning to read more by Baker.

  2. If you find good Doctor Who fiction, I may have to steal some ideas… 🙂 I’ve listened to a few audiobooks (read by David Tennant!) but would like to find other good ones.

    1. I read The Silent Stars Go By written by Dan Abnett earlier this year and really enjoyed it. It features the Matt Smith version of the Doctor and Rory and Amy. Abnett captured their voices really well and it has a Christmas-ish theme, so perfect for a December read.

      1. I’ve actually been wanting to try one of his Warhammer books and when I saw he wrote the Doctor Who book it seemed the perfect time to both read my first ever Doctor Who novel AND to check out his writing style.
