William's Book Blog

Mostly book reviews.  Very rarely I'll allow William Campbell Powell (author) to write a blog entry on publishing activity, but he's under orders to keep that stuff over on his Facebook page and on http://williamcampbellpowell.com

Sister Mine (Nebula/Andre Norton Shortlist)

Sister Mine - Nalo Hopkinson

I'm baffled.  I'm at 50% and I have no idea why it's on the Andre Norton list.  This is mainstream, not YA, and I'm loving it.

 

I don't suppose anyone remembers Henry Kuttner's short story 'Cold War', or the other Hogben stories, but there's a strong resemblance.  At the risk of showing a Brit's ignorance of the American class system, I'd call it a sort of trailer park version of Amber, more like the second series than the first, perhaps.

 

More anon.
