I have all those books, in the SFBC editions, but not the "Plus 0ne". Hrmmm.

I have divested all my old SFBC books, most were donated to my local library. Became a John Varley fan due to failing to send back a card in time. Still can't pronounce the name of that constellation correctly.

owe-fee-you-cuss is the constellation; stars which belong to it get the surname owe-fee-yew-ki, yippie-oh-you-kai-ay!

Andrew Wheeler should stop by to say hi.

It took me long enough, but: hi!

(All the comments at Tor.com about the death of the SFBC are sad, but they're true for every other book-club, too: they're all now hansom carriages in steam-engine time. SF readers should know something about that.)

Read them all. The Hugo Winners were a tasty collection, and old and moldy as it may be, I have a certain fondness for Healy and McComas as one of the first SF anthologies I read, when I was still a wee lad with hope and the ability to skip.

Inkwells on desks. Yes, my primary school had those, and we did actually used dipping pens for a year or two - must have been around 1960. Then fountain pens and cartridge pens were the norm.

Throughout my entire school career - 1958 to 1970 - we were forbidden to use biros (ballpoints) for school work. Then I went to university and for a while it felt wrong to take lecture notes using a biro.
