Please let us know if you are reading, or plan to read, Way Station by Clifford D. Simak.

Please, **NO SPOILERS** in this thread.


Bill Burris (wburris) I read this just over a year ago and enjoyed it very much.

Jim Mcclanahan (clovis-man) | 485 comments One of Simak's best. Been a long time since I read it. So I'll participate in discussion as my faulty memory will allow.


DivaDiane | 187 comments I read this several years ago and remember loving it. I also love that it's set in Wisconsin, where I'm from.


Joey Anderson | 43 comments I started this today as I needed a small break from Declare. A note: Way Station is on sale on Kindle for today.

I loved the way that Simak opened the story. You cannot help but be engaged.

I am a fellow Wisconsinite and didn’t know this book is set in our lovely state. I won’t be reading it soon, but now it is more on my radar.

Jim Mcclanahan (clovis-man) | 485 comments There's a little midwest flavor in almost everything he wrote.


Christine | 620 comments I've just started this book; I will follow the discussions


Phil J | 57 comments I checked Wiki, and it said that most of Simak's books are set in Wisconsin and feature a rugged frontiersy-type with a pet dog named Towser. I guess he left the dog out this time to make it feel more lonely.

So if you're into Wisconsin fiction, then I guess you can check out more Simak.
