A while ago I planned to read 2001 A Space Odyssey up to the point where something happens to one of the crew. (Spoiler evasion for those who havent read it),then I would jump to 3001 the Final Odyssey to continue his story. When done I'd jump back to the rest of 2001 and then end the journey with 2010,Odyssey II-the year we make contact-marking this year's SF coincidence nicely! Well I'm part way through that journey now and its been fun, and even though I've read 2001 countless times I never tire of it!
Open the pod-bay doors HAL!
