Bellwether: Connie Willis's classic, hilarious novel about the science of trendiness


[Read the post]


Sounds like a job for Blue Ant.


Are you saying you recognize a pattern here?


Love Willis’ work but have to confess a preference for the meaty, massive stories full of weight and emotion: Doomsday Book, Blackout and All Clear, even Lincoln’s Dreams… there’s a great short story too, The Winds of Marble Arch. Oh, and the novella about HL Mencken, whatever that’s called, it’s hilarious.


Every time I see a new trend, I think of this book! Thanks for the plot summary, @doctorow, It’s been at least 20 years since I read the book.


I got this in a combo edition with Remake and Uncharted Territory. This was great, though Remake was my favorite of the three.


I find her stuff a bit hit-and-miss, but I really thought this one was fun.
