Contrition of a Bad SF Fan – Backlist Bingo / Sign-Up

In her 2020 reading plans Imyril from There is Always Room for One More shared a backlist bingo card for 2020 that she was going to focus on. We were all invited to join. And you all know me, I can’t quite step away from a challenge. It is a problem.

The bingo card focuses on some backlist sf books as late as 2019. I do need to read some more sci-fi so I hope this bingo card will help me a little.


I have ideas for some prompts and not so much for others. So we will see how far I will get.
