Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Punk's Not Dead 2017

Punk's Not Dead 2017

I've been listening to punk rock almost for as long as I've been reading sci-fi and fantasy so last year I thought, "Why not combine the these two great loves of mine?" And thus, the Punk's Not Dead! Reading Challenge was born! I wasn't able to participate as much as I would have liked last year so I've brought it back for another go round.

The rules are pretty simple: read any book considered part of the -punk suffixed sub-genres listed on WWEnd sub-genre page, namely steampunk, cyberpunk and/or splatterpunk. You don't have to review every book you read but I do ask that you at least stop by the forum thread to say a few words about what you read. I'm not overly familiar with these sub-genres (the main reason I've started this challenge) and want to hear about what you guys are reading.

I've named the reading levels this time around after various punk rock bands that have influenced me.
