My summer reading plan was to read sf books with "City" in the title. That's because I love China Mieville's THE CITY AND THE CITY and recently read Clifford Simak's great classic CITY.
So I pick up Jo Walton's JUST CITY, which incorporates Platonic cosmology, the Greek pantheon, maieutic dialogues, and time travel. Amazing stuff!
I had to break my rule and read the remaining books in the trilogy, which do not have city in the title.
I think the Strugatsky Brothers' DOOMED CITY might be next after that, but I'm open to suggestions, since most of the remaining ones on my list are by "golden age" dudes.
