I thought I would give you all a heads up on what’s to come!
First of all I would like to thank Björn for being an amazing friend and sending me a link to the course that I’m taking at the moment! Thank you for being such an awesome friend! I would have never found this if it wasn’t for you 🙂
The link that he sent me was for a Coursera course called “Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World” The instructor for this course is Eric S. Rabkin, a professor at the University of Michigan. Rabkin has won numerous teaching awards and has won the Science Fiction Research Association’s Pilgrim Award for lifetime contributions to science fiction criticism
Coursera offers a multitude of online courses that you can join for free! And now that I’m struggling with my tendonitis and can’t use my arms that much I read a whole lot. This course was a perfect opportunity for me to learn more and become a better reader and writer even when I’m home and sick.
The course started up yesterday and the first week I’ll be reading tales by Grimm.
Later on we’re reading novels by H.G. Wells, Edgar Allan Poe, Lewis Carroll, Bram Stroker, Mary Shelley and many others!
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Household Stories by Grimm
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
The Island of Doctor Moreau by H.G. Wells
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
I will review these books here on my site as I get through them on the course.
So be ready for a whole lot of Fantasy and Science Fiction for the next ten weeks!
I can’t wait to share this with you guys and there will be more goodies as well!
See you soon!
