I’ve always read more fantasy than sci-fi. My stats for the year so far tell me the number of fantasy books I’ve read outweighs the sci-fi by nearly three to one. So I thought I’d take the opportunity to even the odds a little bit.

Carl of Stainless Steel Droppings runs some fantastic reading challenges throughout the year. Among them is the Sci-fi Experience, which invites readers to:

a) Continue their love affair with science fiction
b) Return to science fiction after an absence, or
c) Experience for the first time just how exhilarating science fiction can be.

It’s less of a challenge than a chance for SF book geeks to share their reading experiences: something I am always delighted to do.

The challenge began on 1 December 2015 (yesterday!) and will run until 31 January 2016, perfectly timed for holiday reading. If you’d like to join in, it’s not too late! You can still sign up.

During the challenge, I hope to finally get around to reading Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie. I also have a gorgeous copy of William Gibson’s Neuromancer which was given to me as a birthday gift. And there’s plenty more sci-fi languishing on the slopes of Mt TBR, as you can see:

After reading Letters to Tiptree, I’m also tempted to drag out the Ursula LeGuin collection I haven’t touched yet.

What sci-fi is on your Mt TBR?
