So, in that spirit, here are links to some good writings about books I haven't read:
The Cultural Gutter on Joe Haldeman's The Forever War
Peter Tsungen has three interesting posts about Italo Calvino's Time and the Hunter: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3
MadInkBeard looks at Gilbert Sorrentino's Under the Shadow
Dave Schwartz on Alice in Jungleland, an extremely rare book written by the mother of Alice Sheldon (better known as James Tiptree, Jr.). Just for fun, I looked up what a copy of the book costs -- the best price I found was $195. I was glad to know Dave's copy is circulating through the Tiptree Auction at WisCon.
SF Signal reviews Ringworld's Children by Larry Niven
Finally, Eric Schlosser, whose books I've been meaning to read for a while, writes about Edward Abbey's The Monkey Wrench Gang, a book I've read a few times.
