Found a review of Dreamsnake(by Vonda McIntyre) by Ursula LeGuin via sartorias (Sherwood Smith). I immediately wanted to reread Dreamsnake and went upstairs to see if I indeed had a copy, as I thought I did.
And I did! Bought in 1980, from my meager student income. I also remember reading the short story this was based on before, though I can't remember where. There was a Dutch publisher who regularly published transaltions of anthologies of Nebula and Hugo winners, and my home town library bought some.
So, off I go to reread that wonderful, wonderful book, triggered by LeGuin's great review. I wonder if I still like it the way I did as a teen, or will my appreciation have changed?
Do you remember the book? Or own it? Speak up!
I might have known you would! I'm rereading it now, and it's still quietly brilliant. And as always when a perceptive person shines their light on it, I see new things to delight me. Not many 30-year old sff books can still dazzle me - apart from LeGuin's, of course...
