What I've Been Reading, October 2017

Links

These links appear in the order I read them, rather than any more refined sort of organization. You may find some of the best ones are near the bottom—it varies from month to month.

Books

Fiction

  • The Guards, by Ken Bruen,
    A Jack Taylor mystery.
  • The Peripheral, by William Gibson
    A story about time travel (sort of) and collapse, by the master of cyberpunk.
  • Visitor, by C. J. Cherryh
    Seventeenth in the Foreigner series, still worth reading, with a surprise near the end.
  • Bannerless, by Carrie Vaughn
    A post collapse novel which avoids some of the worst stereotypes of that genre.
  • pH, A Novel, by Nancy Lord
    University politics in Alaska in a time of falling ocean pH (ocean acidification).

Non-Fiction

  • Enough is Enough, by Rob Dietz (Author), Dan O'Neill (Author), Herman Daly (Foreword)
    Building a Sustainable Economy in a World of Finite Resources
  • And here are a couple of gems from my bookshelf:

  • The Third Chimpanzee, by Jared Diamond
    The evolution and future of the human animal.
  • The Long Descent, by John Michael Greer
    A Users Guide to the end of the industrial age.
