Merlin  ·  3 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Good Sci-Fi books for a fiction book club?

I mean Herbert's "Dune" is an absolute classic and can easily be taken in as just one book without delving into the series. I'm also a big Kim Stanley Robinson fan and really loved his book "2312" for its seemingly very realistic depiction of humanity in the far future. Very hard-science fiction which can make it a little dense at times but well worth it in my opinion.

"Lullaby" I've just always loved the way it rolls off the tongue.

Always on the lookout for good books like this so thanks for the link! I haven't fermented any beverages before yet but I am familiar with fermented foods. Look forward to hearing the results of your cider experiment!

Happy Hub-day! I've been enjoying our games of Go! Would love to see a more detailed post on your cider. I've been gathering the equipment for a go at mead but love a good homemade cider.

Good read. Interesting and little scary. I had to admit I chuckled a good bit about Adam Neumann's company WeWork transitioning to WeCompany in order to start up real-estate and education missions. It automatically brought to mind the book We by Yevgeny Zamyatin. Maybe he wasn't so wrong in his prediction....

Seems strange to me that his wife would've gotten angry with him and not the media
