The SF Book Meme: She’s Not Dead Yet, Jim!

Way back when, at the height of the meme post phenomenon, I created a science fiction book meme. This meme had the dubious distinction of possibly being the only meme in the history of all memes to go just about nowhere. I mean, just look at how many months the Science Fiction Book Club meme (based on their list of The top 50 most significant sf/f books) has been floating around, and that was based on a list created back in the pre-meme year of 2002! Beaten, I retreated to a corner, huddled into a ball, sucking my thumb and shivering a little, waiting for the cold, reassuring hand of death to stake its claim.

Or maybe not! There seems to be somewhat of a resurgence of my sf book meme.

Sweet! My head is tingling with a euphoria that only an overinflated ego can provide. Now I can walk proudly and hold my head up high. Or at least as much as my poor posture will allow. Thank you, Blogosphere!

  1. I came across this on someone else’s site awhile back. Glad to know who the creator was. Its a fun meme. My answers are here

  2. I had missed that you were the original originator of this meme. When I came across it on Wheeler’s site, I thought it fun enough to do. He didn’t get it from your site, either. So its been circling around for a while.

  3. Well, I’m delighted to make the acquaintance of the blogger who first started this meme! I had no idea who began it – but it was a classic in the genre. Thank you!
