I will be attending Baycon this year which is a Bay Area Science Fiction Convention. I heard about this convention when I attended Worldcon last year. David Brin is going to be attending the convention and there are multiple panels that he will be taking part in. I thought this would be a perfect time to read one of his novels. I read Startide Rising which is the second book in his Uplift novels. It seems you can skip the first book and directly jump onto the second book in the series. Both the second part and third part in this series won Hugo awards.
Connie Willis is one of the Grand Masters of science fiction and I always wanted to read her books. She is like a Queen of Time Travel with 4 Hugo winning novels based on Time Travel. I love Time Travel stories so I had to check out her books. The first book in her Oxford Time Travel series is Doomsday Book. I had read a short story by this author and it was amazing so I had high expectations going into this book and I still loved it.
