That's also a pretty good album - saw them once.

As for a favourite album from '72? So many good albums that year, but being a Deadhead, Europe '72 probably gets it. Saw them on that tour, at a mudbath festival. As we're in the sci-fi thread, I'll pick this track, as it was inspired by On the Beach, which is a pretty good novel.

If they were written at (more or less) the same time, leading to the "herding cats" problem, I think yes. If they were a consecutive sequence ... no cats were herded, and so the herd was of size 2 or 3, and has already been trumped.
I think that this is where we were stalled - unless spud42 actually posted the titles and authors of the books and I missed it. If it was ruled ineligible I think the previous answer was mine, which means I should presumably set the next question.
