Having survived many a Dakota winter myself, I always thought Laura Ingalls Wilder, who wrote her stories late in life, had exaggerated the winters described in her books, particularly the winter she spent in De Smet, SD, described in her book "The Long Winter." A doctoral student in meteorology has found her descriptions generally accurate. That winter was a bad one as confirmed in data from Midwest weather stations.

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?
