Science Fiction and Fantasy Masterworks


I've recently become involved in a new reading project which will begin July 1st.  Put together by Patrick of Stomping on Yeti, a group of us will be reading the SF and Fantasy Masterworks.  The Masterworks are a series of science fiction and fantasy books published by Orion publishing group through its imprints Millennium and Gollancz.   Many of the books included are written by Hugo authors. The books are in series order instead of publication date order.   Each one of us will be reading one book a month and reviewing them on a group blog  (to be announced soon) until all the books on both lists have been read. The links lead to SF.com where you will find descriptions and pictures of their cool new covers.
