I really enjoyed Becky Chambers and, back in the day, the Blood Price books and Tamora Pierce.

Slow River by Nicola Griffith (1995)
Zero Sum Game by S.L. Huang (2014) (!!!!! read first, a math super hero!)
Blood Price by Tanya Huff (1991)

I would recommend those three first, with the Huang first first. So good.

The Huff is a brilliant series that accurately depicts being disabled and also vampires, until about book seven when it jumps the shark and spoiler spoiler spoiler. Ugh. Then they are just fun, instead of fun and brilliant. Also, I was on a panel with her about these books lo these many years ago and she said something infuriating about why her heroine is disabled and it still makes me cross. But, anyhow. Good books.

I read Frankenstein last year and really enjoyed it more then I thought I would, kudos to Mary Shelley. Also read Martha Wells All System's Red the AI was one of my favorite characters of the year.


I was thinking about reading the Fifth Season this year, for one of my squares for a book bingo I am participating in. Did you like it?

Yeah I am not sure I am up for anything that is so full of sorrow. If that makes sense, my day to day life is pretty heavy right now as is, so I am trying to keep my reading a bit on the lighter side.

Just what you needed, right? Though some of the titles were on the Tiptree lists.

What info would you like about these books, if any, to help you decide what to read next?

Just one?!?!

Probably Megan Lindholm's Wizard of the pigeons. One of the few fantasy books to have a homeless person as a main character. Brilliant. Loved the characters, and the good vs. evil. Urban fantasy, technically, but with magic and no elves.

Also in top tier: anything by Rachel Pollack, A door into ocean for the science, A mask for the general for the politics, Adaptation for a fairy tale retold, and Ooku for graphic story/historical/gender swapping.
