Clarke. (the series is downloadable from Amazon.com and iTunes, and made me expand my sci-fi horizons … Continue reading 2061: Odyssey Three, by Arthur C. Clarke
I think this book is an interesting find. I found it a few years ago when I was gathering research materials on Houston in the 20th century. There really aren't many books about the Houston area, fiction OR nonfiction, and I was hoping to write something of either someday.
I've spent the past week trying to learn (or re-learn) too many varying things.
