Last night was pretty good; I went to my monthly swimming group and ended up in the pub chatting with a new swimmer (Kat, I think, though I'm so crap with names I'm probably wrong) about science fiction.

She asked me for recommendations, as she's recently got into SF, and I sort of stood there slackjawed for a while as I realised that I've...not really been reading much of it, except Iain M Banks, and she already had a book of his in her backpack; she's also already read Le Guin. I ended up saying Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Octavia Butler and Julian May, because they were my intro to SF. Does anyone have any recommendations, for both of us?

[personal profile] esque also got me a signed poster of Guillermo del Toro, with whom the lucky bastard spent several hours last night (no, not like that). Envy~

I am really ridiculously tired, though. I don't know if it's just because I've not yet gotten used to the summer sunrise schedule yet or what. I got a normal amount of sleep last night, I just...feel like I haven't. Weird.
jackluminous: (good news everyone!)
I laughed because it's true.

(Yes, it has giant transforming robots in, but it holds up even if you're not a fanboy.)
