from the diary: “Friday 3/21/86
“I checked out from the library Brian Aldiss’ Helliconia Trilogy. I don’t like reading a series unless I have all the books – if it turns out I don’t like ‘em, I can return them all at once; but if I love the story I can’t wait around for book three to become available – some year.”
Am I more patient than I used to be? A little. I intentionally took breaks between volumes of Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars books.
