Reading Roundup Wrapup: August 2012

Pick of the month: When the People Fell by Cordwainer Smith. Is there a better single-author collection of classic science fiction? Probably, but none could match this one for ideas. Smith edges out Legion Lost, Endless Nights, and Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness, all of which could have handily won this thing in a different month.
