I'm joining the Sci-Fi Challenge!

I came across the Sci-Fi Challenge hosted by Stage and Canvas via Farm Lane Books and thought that sounds right up my alley as I've been trying to read more science fiction books this year.

Essentially it requires the reading of "3.14 or 8 books (or audio books) of the science-fiction genre" from August 28, 2009 to August 8, 2010. I will aim for 8!

Here's my pool:
The Children of Men - P.D. James
I, Robot - Isaac Asimov
Parable of the Sower - Octavia Butler
His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, Book 1)- Naomi Novik
Red Mars - Kim Stanley Robinson
Passage - Connie Willis
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?- Philip K. Dick
Childhood's End - Arthur C. Clarke
The Female Man - Joanna Russ
The Other End of Time - Frederik Pohl
The Illustrated Man - Ray Bradbury
The Telling - Ursula K Le Guin
Woman on the Edge of Time - Marge Piercy
Fledgling - Octavia Butler

I know very little about science fiction (the main reason I joined this challenge) so I can't really comment on your list.

Good luck with this challenge!

To be honest, I don't quite know too much about my pool, I was mostly trying to go by what's available (and sounded interesting) at my local library! Good luck to you too!
