Jul 02, 2009

it was ok
bookshelves: humor, sci-fi
Read in July, 2006

The sequel to Bimbos of the Death Sun, though not any better. McCrumb has invented her own science fiction fandom--the same basics (zines, conventions, BNFs) but with made-up authors and terms. Her characters are uninteresting, her humor is forced, and the fictional fandom is painful to read. Also, sadly dated. It's an ok read, but I'd hardly recommend it.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) I was disappointed, too. It had so much potential and fell flat. Plus it was horribly sexist.

Wealhtheow I know! McCrumb is a leetle too in love with Dr.Jay Omega.
And she's so contemptuous of sf/fantasy fans, but the only people who would get her references/jokes would be sf/fantasy fans.

Kelly H. (Maybedog) Seriously! Way to shoot yourself in the foot!
