That's a nice list! I'm hoping to do this too, just need to find a moment to do a quick post. I did it last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Bev, I'm not into Science Fiction, but it's so nice to see someone else who's (almost) addicted to challenges as I am! Keep 'em coming - we are going to have SO much fun next year :-)

Scifi is my first love and I can't wait to see what you think of the books you're reading. Absolutely love Frank Herbert and I hope you enjoy The Jesus Incident!

Now this one intrigues me, Bev. I don't read much science fiction but that's my own fault. If I join up with this one, I'll have an if I needed one. :)

I'm waiting until the first of the year before I make any important which Challenges to join. Ha!

I'm so excited for this. It's not often that I read science fiction, so I'm looking forward to it. I just found that I have a copy of Journey to the Center of the Earth, so maybe that goes on my list as well!

You've got a great list, I may need to bookmark this to remember these titles!

Ah Randall Garrett. I love the Lord Darcy series. I have the omnibus volume with all his stories. I found the Vintage SF challenge, which will be an interesting challenge, compared to mystery. I have plenty of classic mystery writers on my shelf, but oddly not as many sf ones.
