July Books

Lack of internet access means I will have to add some stats later.

I hesitated a bit about categorisation of some of these. Leaves of Grass is clearly more non-fiction than fiction, but probably I should set up a special category for poetry. Sophocles's plays feature characters with the gift of prophecy, and Lovejoy has a similar uncanny ability to tell real antiques from fake, but I am counting them all as non-genre; it is not clearly established in my mind that the relevant characters' gifts are sfnal in nature. Finally, though I bought the Countdown Annual for its Doctor Who content, 90% of it is about other stuff so I classify it as general sf. The Mermaids Singing turned out not to have any sfnal content.
