    Zack's recommendations

    (no particular order; c/p from discord #books)

    1. Sherwood Smith - Inda - 4 books, start with Inda. Fairly unique as far as medieval fantasy with battle school and pirates goes. The omniscient POV can be jarring at first, but enables Smith to really bring all the characters to life, even minor ones and villains. Magic is mostly low-key but implemented in a creative way. Series follows the titular character's life from boy through adulthood, large cast of three-dimensional characters and cool worldbuilding.

    2. Lois McMaster Bujold - Vorkosigan Saga - lot of books, start with Shards of Honor or The Warrior's Apprentice. Science fiction series that mostly follows the life of Miles Vorkosigan. Mostly adventure, but the books run the gamut of genre including romance, mystery, etc. The books tend toward "light" quick reads, though some of the books are pretty dark and complex. Several books have won Hugos. If you're interested more on the reading order, I can talk about that more, it's a can of worms. Also, The Curse of Chalion and Paladin of Souls are fantasy novels by the same author that are also excellent.

    3. Becky Chambers - Wayfarers - 4 books, start with The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet but can be read in any order if you want. Feel-good science fiction that is light on plot and more slice-of-life. Very enjoyable.

    4. Joe Abercrombie - The First Law - start with The Blade Itself, that's a trilogy, then 3 standalone novels + a short story collection, then a sequel trilogy with the final book coming out in a few days. Grimdark fantasy, but also pretty funny. Great characters.

    5. Josiah Bancroft - The Books of Babel - 4 books, start with Senlin Ascends, final book out in November. Fantasy. Good characters, cool world, gripping story. First book starts a little slow and Senlin is not particularly likeable at the beginning, give him time.

    6. Pierce Brown - Red Rising - start with Red Rising, that's a trilogy, there's a sequel trilogy that is less good; it's up to you whether you want to read it or not, the initial trilogy is a complete arc that stands on its own. First book is basically Ender's Game x Hunger Games. Then the series becomes more of a space opera. Page turner, action-packed.

    7. Ursula K. Le Guin - The Dispossessed. Probably the most thought-provoking science fiction novel I've ever read. Explores anarchism, capitalism, and other societal questions. A lot of people enjoy The Left Hand of Darkness as much or more; I was not as big on it but it's still good.

    8. Madeline Miller - Circe. Draws on Greek mythology to re-imagine the life of Circe, mostly known as that witch from The Odyssey. People also love The Song of Achilles by the same author, though I personally don't think it's nearly as good as Circe (with the caveat that I haven't finished it yet).

    9. Ann Leckie - Ancillary Justice - two sequels that are enjoyable but not as good, it's your choice whether or not to read them. Science fiction from the POV of a robot who doesn't understand gender and seeks vengeance against the emperor. Sequels have a lot of drinking tea and talking iirc, for better or worse.

    10. James Islington - Licanius Trilogy - start with The Shadow of What Was Lost. Kind of a similar style to Sanderson, epic fantasy with grand worldbuilding and lots of magic. Some characters are not super great, but one in particular (not the MC) has an incredibly compelling arc.

    There are others I might shout out later, but 10 was the limit given in discord.

    with that said logic has 15 posts and like none of them appear to be attempting to figure out wolves and they seem pretty defeatist in this game state so i dont mind going there first

    i think its always in those two tho

    @Logic

    you're probably dying today and you're giving us practically nothing. :/

    wheres your head at, whats your read list, etc?
    The wolfiest thing I think you've done is suspect me with the gusto you have.

    I haven't really "solved for Sunbae," instead I'm just kinda sheeping the thread consensus.

    I'm not volume clearing cuth, but it does factor into my "probably not a wolf" read. Again, the only real reason I have to suspect him is how strongly he's scumreading me, because he should know better.

    I haven't solved roro either, but his earlier "openwolfing" irked me, then he backed off of it which I can't tell if that was for wolfy reasons or towny ones. Also, he said something regarding the Nutella NK that had me scratching my head.

    Benneh I still don't see how he spends a paragraph describing how I'm scummy as all get out, then votes Hally as his top scumspect.
    benneh never voted hally, what are you talking about?
