Uni Book Haul

The Power of Myth - Joseph Campbell The Hero with a Thousand Faces (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell) - Joseph Campbell The Future is Japanese -  Hyperspace - Michio Kaku Reload: Rethinking Women + Cyberculture - The Juniper Game (Point) - Sherryl Jordan Palm-of-the-Hand Stories - Yasunari Kawabata

 

*Let’s see if I can finish these books before my last undergrad semester takes over.

I’ve just started The Power of Myth and I’m restraining myself from quoting. I can’t wait to read The Hero of a Thousand Faces.

I grabbed The Future is Japanese because of the anthology’s theme…and picked up Hyperspace because it mentioned parallel universes. Michio Kaku is on my must-read list for non-fiction.

Reload: Rethinking Women + Cyberculture. This one contains critical commentary on gender and sci fi. The collection also includes Feminist cyberpunk short stories by writers I want to check out. E.g. Octavia E. Butler, Anne McCaffrey & Alice B. Sheldon – alias – James Tiptree Jr.

I loved Winter of Fire by Sherryl Jordan so I’m curious to see what her YA sci-fi is like in The Juniper Game.

I wonder if Palm of the Hand Stories will be on my Japanese Lit. list next semester.

    1. Definitely, I’ve had so many thoughts while reading the Power of Myth so I’ll probably talk about the arguments I agree and disagree with in that one.

      I don’t talk enough about short stories so I expect to have something to mull over in The Future is Japanese and Reload. The Palm of the Hand stories are last in my pile so hopefully when I reach them, it’ll be good too.
