WHAT I'M CURRENTLY READING

August 18, 2003

nung umuwi ako last week, hinalungkat ko yung library namin para kumuha ng libro na babasahin ko sa eroplano pabalik dito sa singapore. pinagpipilian ko eh either of the two of my favorite science fiction novels. yung una ay yung Songs of Distant Earth ni Arthur C. Clarke at ikalawa ang Beyond the Veil of Stars ni Robert Reed. mas maganda ang storya ni arthur clarke pero pinili ko yung kay robert reed.

siguro, pang limang beses ko na itong binabasa. maganda naman kasi ang pagkagawa ng librong ito. tapos, makakalimutin pa ako. ito lang ang masarap sa medyo ulyanin: pag tagal kasi, nakakalimutan ko ang mga detalye ng istorya. pag binabalikan ko ang mga lumang libro, para ulit akong nagbabasa for the very first time. like a virgin? perhaps.

if you have time to read only one science fiction book, take a pick between these two books. di kayo magsisisi.

PS: oo nga pala, nabasa nyo na ba yung short story ni arthur clarke na “THE NINE BILLION NAMES OF GOD”? ba’t ko ba ito nabanggit? wala lang, it’s a killer title for a story kasi (and to my great relief, it is a great story).
