Odd Books Have An Ally

I recall so many odd books in my time. I’d see these odd things on the shelf and pick them up or wonder. Or maybe read them and forget them. I especially loved science fiction and fantasy.

Thomas Anderson in part is reliving my childhood and then some by reviewing odd, forgotten, or strange genre fiction at Shlock Value.  It’s really worth reading his reviews as he finds amazing things.

What’s odd is how many of these books seem almost quaintly odd or imaginative.  I can’t see many of them getting published today, and we’re poorer for it.
