    Some good stuff there. I’m particularly fond of the last two. “The Tin Drum” has the distiction of being one of the few great books to have had a great film made of it.

    That is quite a haul. Bunches of certified classics, and in the SF a book that certainly should have won the Hugo, Pangborn’s Davy, even if the voters that year thought they just had to give Leiber (The Wanderer) some kind of award. And you should have fun with the Kornbluth.
