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!
