‘Unknown In This Country’
Wasn’t sure what I was getting into with this. Apparently it’s well-regarded, well-known science fiction, but not in the UK. I’m told the publisher tried to sell this author’s work in the UK with terrible covers, nobody bought them, so they’re not really published in the UK. This paperback had to be shipped in especially for me!
And it’s good stuff!
One strange quirk. This is part of a series of books, but it’s the second. Starting at the second seems very strange to me, but it’s (apparently) the way the author thinks they should be read. (Timeline order rather than publishing order.) No idea if that’s a good idea or now, since I’ve only read one of the books...
