Due to being more-or-less snowed in, or at least, not very keen to go anywhere in this weather, I piled through Elizabeth Moon's Hunting Party in a couple of days. I enjoyed it. It was a fairly straightforward SF adventure of the kind that Baen specialise in. It flowed well enough and kept me entertained. I'll certainly be reading the other two books in the omnibus.

There's barely anything in it that's really SF, though. I think it's beginning to bug me how backwards-looking this type of stuff really is. I'd better not read the second one until I'm back in the right mood for an undemanding adventure.

I'm planning to move on to Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A Heinlein, a book I've been semi-dreading for a while. It's one of the 9 Hugo winners I have left to read - probably the one I'm least looking forward to - and will get me started on the last of my major sub-challenges this year. I seem to have the original version, not the newer extended edition. I'm hoping to have my expectations pleasantly confounded.
