Phoenixfalls According to my research (by which I mean, according to the god of Wikipedia) The Sirens of Titan was published in 1959.

Peter oops!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Am of two minds as to add Telzey Amberdon - the stories are all from the 60s, but the specific publication form is later, I think.

Interesting article in Wikipedia on this -- looks like all the stories in this collection are from the 60's - so I'd say go ahead and add it in!

Especially since they were originally printed in one of my favorite old school sci-fi magazines - Analog!


message 5: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Sep 19, 2011 08:15PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads OK, I think I'll add it, then.

ETA: It's available as a free ebook from Baen, by the way.


message 6: by Sophie (new)

Sophie Removed Flowers for Algernon & A Canticle for Leibowitz for being published in the 50s, and Tau Zero, Cities in Flight, Tower of Glass, The Sheep Look Up, Juniper Time, Frankenstein Unbound, & A Time of Changes for being published in the 70s.

Left Retief! alone, but it technically doesn't fit the criteria.

I started the list and was wondering how to remove books. Is it possible to do that if I'm not a Goodreads Librarian ?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I don't think so, no.


message 9: by Peter (new)

Peter 'Galactic Diplomat' would be a better fit than 'Retief'. 'Retief' does include some early stories from the 60's, but it's really a selection that spans the length of Laumer's Retief series.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could add it.


message 11: by Peter (new)

Peter I'm going to sound crazy, but I'm a stickler for following my own made up rules, so since I'm not a huge fan of that series, I'm not going to add it in. I can see why it would be a good one to add in though. So anyone else who likes that series can go ahead. Nothing against Laumer, I do like a lot of his other work.
