Really? I might have to check you out one of these days...
as I said in 'Writer-Readers'... I am convinced that everyone on LibraryThing is into reading and writing Fantasy.
Have I been missing out?
(#8: I'm not into reading fantasy, if that helps. There's at least one other person here.)
#14- I recently read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Alexie and really loved it.
Is there any type of list out there of younger authors?
Tried to find a list via Google, but no luck yet.
To be fair, I haven't read much science fiction. A few classic titles like 1984 and Brave New World. I tried to read Hitchhiker's Guide but couldn't do it. The feminist in me just bristles at science fiction. These authors can imagine such vivid worlds so different from ours. Yet, men still run society while women cook and clean. I think they can do better than that.
If you want to read some feminist sci-fi, I recommend anything by Octavia E. Butler or Ursula K. LeGuin (touchstone broken).
