Whatcha Reading? (Picking it up again)

Finished a quick reread of Ellison’s “Deathbird Stories” because I needed a light read :wink:

Was talking authors with an acquaintance, and mentioned Ellison. He’d only read “I Have No Mouth…” “Is all of his stuff that dark?” Heh. Not really, sorta, maybe…

Stepping back into a reread of Anathem. I’ll let you know when I resurface.

Reeve was on the ground covering the Unite the Right rally and has spent an ungodly amount of time interviewing people on the far-right. The book does a good job of painting a portrait of a few people in the movement while also making sure not to sympathize with them. (Literally at one point she says something to the effect of, “Regardless of anything, they made a choice. They weren’t forced into it. They made a choice to believe in and do these things.”) It’s not the easiest read because these people have some screwed up beliefs. It’s a good read, though.
