Dune, Other Worlds, Cheap

Spread the love

For kindle, Dune, cheap, at least for American customers.

Meanwhile, of possible interest: Other Worlds Than These by John Joseph Adams.

We can all imagine such “other worlds”–be they worlds just slightly different than our own or worlds full of magic and wonder–but it is only in fiction that we can travel to them. From The Wizard of Oz to The Dark Tower, from Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass to C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia, there is a rich tradition of this kind of fiction, but never before have the best parallel world stories and portal fantasies been collected in a single volume–until now.

It is an anthology of some kind, I put it here because it looks interesting, but I’ve not read it. Have you?

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:

In Search of Sungudogo by Greg Laden, now in Kindle or Paperback

  1. Just got dune. I read it many years ago, so things are a little dusty.

    General news: Michigan hasn’t gone shelter at home yet, but lots of stuff is closed. I got out to a local woods for about 4 hours yesterday: good hike, some good pictures, and cold. Gotta do that while we can.

    I’ve been keeping journals for our sons since each of their adoption processes began (they’re now 25 and 22). I’ve told them that when (if) they eventually read through the volumes to see what things went on during their youth, things starting early in 2020 will be quite interesting.

    Hope your family is doing well Greg.

  2. I haven’t read it either, but you are correct that it is an anthology. It gets a good rating on Amazon. One reviewer writes: “This is a nicely balanced selection of short stories about traveling to and among parallel worlds, with a good mix of classic and new writers. I preferred the science fiction (multiple universe theory) stories to the fantasy (portal to magical worlds) ones, but all of the stories were entertaining.”

    The ISFDB gives a table of contents:

    Quite a few accomplished authors are included. This looks like a good read.
